CONTRACT AWARDED FOR FIRST PROJECT TO BE FUNDED WITH 10-cent FUEL TAX REVENUE
The first project to be funded with the additional fuel tax revenue WYDOT will receive this year is among the six contracts totaling $13.4 million awarded by the Wyoming Transportation Commission during its July teleconference meeting.
McGarvin-Moberly Construction of Worland won that contract with a bid of $3.8 million for milling off deteriorating pavement and replacing it with a new layer of pavement and a final chip seal on a 10 mile-section of WYO 28 between the Sublette County line and the South Pass Rest Area south of Lander. WYDOT will fund the project with the additional $4 million in revenue it expects to receive in September as a result of the fuel tax increase that took effect July 1. The contract completion date is July 31, 2014.
