FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lower Nowood River slide repair project nears completion
A $301,000 slide repair project on the Lower Nowood Road (Washakie County Road 47) is nearly complete, according to Dan McAfee, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Worland.
The slide repair project is located about 4.75 miles north of U.S. 16 near Ten Sleep.
"The slide repair project addressed a 200-foot section of the county road and guardrail near a bridge that crosses the Nowood River," McAfee said. "The entire width of the roadway is open to motorists, and the only remaining piece of work remaining is the chip seal finish on 200 feet of roadway, which we expect to occur in a single day in July or August."
Project work on the slide repair project has included installing crushed gravel base, milling asphalt, installation of the 44 steel "H" piling, and other work at reference marker 4.75 on Washakie County Road 47.
Prime contractor is Reiman Corp. and Subsidiaries of Cheyenne. The Wyoming Transportation Commission awarded the project to Reiman on Sept. 28, 2012.
Contract completion date for the highway improvements is Aug. 31, 2013.
WYDOT contact for this project is Worland Resident Engineer Dan McAfee.
