Two upcoming projects on I-25; WYDOT with the community #Headsup

(Casper, Wyo.) WYDOT would like to notify residents of the upcoming construction projects around Natrona County. *Interstate 25: Reconstruction of Northbound lanes – Poplar Street to Wardwell* Last year WYDOT completed the Southbound lanes and prep work on Howard Street is now under way. That work should be completed by the end of this week (March 11). Depending on the weather, this project may begin on or shortly after March 21. Traffic will be switched to the Southbound lanes during the construction, one lane, either direction. Merging traffic onto I-25 will be required to stop prior to entering the interstate. Lane widths on I-25 will be 16 feet between Poplar the Shoshoni Bypass. *I-25 at Poplar Street:* This project is repairing the bridge girder and bridge deck damaged in 2015 on Interstate 25 over Poplar Street. Traffic control will be set beginning Monday, March 14. Traffic will be diverted to the Southbound lanes of Poplar Street between Bighorn and just North of I-25. There will be no left turns allowed through the construction zone, or roughly the Dairy Queen area to the interstate. Speeds through the work zone will also be reduced. The repair should be completed by June 24. #oilcity #wydot #news
