A $905,000 highway safety and lighting project is slated to begin next week on U.S. 26/Wyoming 789, north of Riverton, according to Robert Scheidemantel, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Riverton.
“Prime contractor Western Wyoming Construction Co., of Lander is scheduled to begin rotomilling existing asphalt pavement from Country Acres and Honor Farm roads on Friday, July 9,” Scheidemantel said. “Travelers of these roads should expect traffic delays during this work.”

By contract, work is required to be complete on Honor Farm and Country Acres roads, including placement of new asphalt pavement, by Oct. 15.
The project is a joint effort by the Wyoming Honor Farm, City of Riverton, Fremont County, and WYDOT.
