Final work scheduled on Wyoming 789 project south of Riverton

Erosion repair, seeding, reclamation, final Little Wind River bridge work, and other punch-list items are scheduled to begin next week on the Riverton South highway improvement project on Wyoming 789. Traffic control will be in place near the work south of Riverton, weather permitting, and delays will be minimal. Prime contractor LeGrand Johnson Construction Co., is scheduled to chip seal the project beginning in mid-June. While chip sealing the five-lane roadway, there will be traffic delays, according to Wyoming Department of Transportation project engineer Wade Elliott of Riverton. Highway and bridge improvements are nearly complete, with the exception of seeding and reclamation on the 3.32-mile highway and bridge improvement project directly on Wyoming 789. The deadline for chip sealing of the roadway and seeding is June 30, 2016. When the Riverton South project is complete, a new five-lane roadway will stretch from the Big Wind River bridge on Riverton's south edge to south of Wind River Casino on Wyoming 789. *h/t WYDOT* #county10 #news #wydot
