Pavement improvement project resumes this week

Posted

A $2.95 million pavement improvement project is scheduled to resume this month north of Cody on Wyo. Highway 120.

The project begins at the end of the concrete highway section (milepost 101.51) on the north edge of Cody and extends 7.59 miles to the top of Skull Creek Hill (milepost 109.10).

The prime contractor is Riverside Contracting, Inc., of Missoula, Montana.

They are scheduled to resume work on Friday, placing some thermoplastic pavement markings.

“The contractor is also scheduled to start fog sealing the shoulders of the roadway and chip sealing the project on June 10,” said Wyoming Department of Transportation Resident Engineer Todd Frost of Cody.

Frost said work should take about a week and is dependent upon favorable weather.

“Motorists should expect delays up to 20 minutes during chip sealing and fog sealing. Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car,” he said.

The WY120 project consists of shoulder flattening with pit run gravel base, and placement of a 1-inch hot plant pavement leveling course, a 2-inch pavement overlay, and a chip seal finish. All work, except the fog seal and chip seal, was completed last fall.

Contract completion date is June 30.
