Poplar Street resurfacing public meeting set April 5

Date: 03/22/2012 

CASPER - The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) will hold a public meeting for the final plan of the Poplar Street resurfacing project. The meeting will be held from 5:30 – 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 5 at the WYDOT District 2 Headquarters, 900 Bryan Stock Trail, Casper.

The project encompasses .41 miles of Poplar Street (WYO 220) from Interstate 25 south to the BNSF railroad overpass. It includes resurfacing of the existing roadway and the construction of sidewalks on either side of the road. The project does not include any work to the bridge over the BNSF Railroad tracks. Nor is the roadway being widened. It's expected the project will be completed by Aug. 31, 2012.

During the project, one lane (12 feet) in either direction will be kept open. However, Poplar Street (all lanes) will be closed for 10 days between Bighorn Road, which is just north of the railroad bridge, and W. 1st Street to allow for resurfacing work. Dates for the full closure have not been set.
During the closure of this area, access will be provided to Black Hills Trucking. Access to all businesses will remain open throughout the duration of the project.
Variable message boards will be in place one week prior to the beginning of work on the project. These will notify drivers of the project, lane switches and any other information about the project, as necessary. Detours will also be posted.
