Repairs to highway barrier rail damaged in a July 11 semi-truck crash
were set to begin Monday, Aug. 1, on
U.S. 14A, about 24 miles east of Lovell in the Bighorn Mountains.
Traffic delays of up to 20 minutes are expected during the three days of
scheduled repairs by WYDOT maintenance crew members in Lovell, according to
Wyoming Department of Transportation district maintenance engineer Pete
Hallsten of Basin.
A 12-foot width restriction will remain in place on U.S. 14A between
Burgess Junction and Lovell until permanent repairs occur, and this
restriction also includes a 29,000-pound weight limit on trucks.
Digital message signs will be placed at Burgess Junction and Lovell warning
travelers of next week's repairs, and a flagger will be stationed at the
top of the mountain to warn west-bound travelers of the WYDOT work zone at
"The repairs are temporary and involve placement of temporary Jersey
barrier, and the roadway will have a 30 mph speed limit until permanent
repairs happen," Hallsten said.
