Road construction will reduce portions of Casper’s 1st Street to two lanes beginning Tuesday, May 26 as crews start the process of repair work between Yellowstone Highway intersection and the Platte River bridge, near Jonah Bank.
Crews will be repairing or replacing damaged concrete, storm sewer inlets, resurfacing the Platte River bridge and performing other maintenance work.
Once construction begins, traffic will be reduced to one lane in either direction. Work will be performed on approximately four-block intervals, beginning at the project’s east end at Yellowstone Highway intersection. The first phase is expected to run between Yellowstone and Park Avenue.
Side streets will be closed as needed Monday through Friday when work is being performed at the intersections. Construction is expected to last throughout the summer.
The construction is being performed by Reiman Corp. of Cheyenne, at an approximate cost of $2.4 million.
