WHEATLAND – Crews with Modern Electric of Casper will be installing a new overhead dynamic message sign across the southbound lanes of I-25 Monday, Aug. 24. The sign will be placed at milepost 77, or about two miles south of Wheatland.
During the installation, southbound I-25 traffic will be detoured at the South Wheatland Interchange and diverted to the service road. Southbound traffic will re-enter I-25 at the Highway 34 intersection.
The DMS installation is scheduled for 8 p.m., Monday and delays should be minimal. The installation will be on Monday only. Traffic control signs and flaggers will assist motorists through the detour.
