Highway work begins north of Greybull
Irrigation pipe installation is under way on the $5.6 million highway improvement project northwest of Greybull on four miles of US 14-16-20.
Temporary fencing and the new right-of-way fence are also being built.
McGarvin-Moberly Construction Company of Worland is the prime contractor.
The Wyoming Transportation Commission awarded the bid to McGarvin-Moberly last September.
The Greybull Northwest project is connected to the Greybull streets project that was built in 2008. It begins just north of the Greybull town limits, and extends northwest past the junction of US 14-16-20 and US 310.
“The contractor has to install pipe that carries water associated with irrigation before irrigation season begins, so this is starting,” said Ben Steed, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Basin. “After the pipe work is complete, the contractor will then begin normal dirt work on the project.”
