Delays Expected on Casper's First Street Bridge

Date: 06/10/2009 


Crews with the Wyoming Department of Transportation and a private engineering firm will be conducting bridge deck testing on the 1st Street bridge over the North Platte River from Tuesday, June 16 through Thursday, June 18.

The testing will result in the closure of two of the four lanes at a time, with traffic reduced to one lane in either direction. The closure will be in effect from approximately 8 a.m. until evening each day. Drivers may encounter delays when crossing the bridge, however it will remain open to traffic during the testing. The side of the bridge closed may also change during each day and all lanes will be reopened each night.
