Paving crew to begin summer work west of Riverton

A Wyoming Department of Transportation asphalt paving crew is scheduled to begin its spring and summer work next week, May 28-30, west of Riverton on U.S. 26.

The paving crew is scheduled to pave more than 1,050 tons of hot-mix asphalt near the Big Wind River bridge on U.S. 26. All work is dependent upon favorable weather.

The WYDOT hot-mix asphalt patching work is scheduled to continue in early June on Wyoming 135, southeast of Riverton, and on U.S. 26/287, east of Dubois. About June 6, the paving crew is scheduled for two days of work on U.S. 287/Wyoming 789 south of Lander. By mid-June, the paving crew's schedule calls for work on Wyoming 28 south of Lander, Wyoming 134 (Missouri Valley Road), and on U.S. 20/Wyoming 789 north of Shoshoni.

The WYDOT paving operation consists of a paving crew, a roller operator and numerous WYDOT trucks hauling the hot asphalt.

“Please obey posted speed limits during the paving operation, and obey flaggers and traffic control for safety’s sake. Drivers should expect short delays,” said WYDOT District 5 Paving Foreman Shawn Coggins. “In work zones, pay attention or pay the price.”
