(Pitchengine Communities) * (Riverton, Wyo.) - A month-long series of concrete repairs on the new section of South Federal Boulevard will begin June 6th, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation. The repairs for cracked concrete will occur between Washington and Monroe, a WYDOT news release indicated. Archer Construction of Riverton will be completing the repairs; Archer was the excavation subcontractor on the 2014 South Federal Boulevard/East Monroe streets project. Reiman Corp., of Cheyenne was the prime contractor on the project. The 2016 repair work is a $50,800 contract amendment with Reiman Corp. "We apologize for the inconvenience. Traffic movements will be impacted. Through the work zone, traffic will be carried on two lanes of South Federal Boulevard," according to Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Robert Scheidemantel of Riverton. "All work will depend upon favorable weather. Repairs are scheduled to take about four weeks to complete." Scheidemantel said half of South Federal Boulevard will undergo concrete repairs at a time in limited areas, so traffic movements will be impacted. "Through these short work zones, traffic will be carried on two lanes of South Federal Boulevard," he said. "Please be courteous of the workers and drive carefully through this area. Traffic control conditions may change daily." Other work includes placement of four-foot-tall steel/concrete bollards near ADA ramps at the southeast corner of the South Federal/Monroe avenues intersection. "Evidence from last winter showed vehicles were accessing the Maverick store over the ADA pedestrian sidewalk at this corner," Scheidemantel said. "Installation of the steel/concrete bollards is designed to limit vehicular access in this area to the store's street accesses." #county10 #news
