U.S. Highway 16 project underway between Worland and Ten Sleep

Posted

A $3.6 million highway improvement project has started on 5.2 miles of U.S. Highway 16 between Worland and Ten Sleep.

Mountain Construction Co., of Lovell is the prime contractor on the project that begins at around 18 miles east of Worland and ends about 3 miles west of Ten Sleep.

The project includes 1 inch of asphalt pavement leveling, a 2-inch asphalt pavement overlay, a chip seal finish, replacement of guardrail and fence, paving of Cottonwood Street and 1st Street in the Town of Ten Sleep, and a double chip seal of Washakie County roads 20-54, 20-580 and 65.

Paving on U.S. 16 is scheduled in early May, with chip sealing in June.

“The contractor is currently working on replacing guardrail and fence,” said Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Kaia Tharp of Thermopolis in a news release. “Twenty-four-hour flagging is occurring in the guardrail sections of U.S. 16 when the guardrail has been removed.”

The Wyoming Transportation Commission awarded the project to Mountain Construction Co., last April. By contract, the project must be complete by July 31.
