Cody Sheridan Avenue project scheduled to begin Monday, March 2

February 24, 2020

A $4.93 million concrete rehabilitation project is scheduled to begin March 2 along Cody's Sheridan Avenue.

Work is scheduled to begin, weather permitting, March 2 on the north side of Sheridan Avenue from 10th Street to 12th Street. The north side of the 10th Street and 11th Street intersections will be closed while traffic is carried, one lane in each direction, on the south side of Sheridan Avenue.   

Phase 1 of the project -- 10th Street to 14th Street -- is required to be complete by June 15,  2020, said Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Todd Frost of Cody.

"The project will be shut down from June 16, 2020, through Aug. 23, 2020," Frost said.

Weekly public work progress meetings will be held at 10 a.m. every Tuesday between March 3 and June 9 at the Cody Club Room. Citizens and businesses are invited to these weekly meetings, where the prime contractor will answer questions and share a two-week schedule of upcoming work.  

The Sheridan Avenue project (#CodyImprovements) includes removing and replacing existing damaged concrete slabs, resealing existing concrete joints, grinding and texturing existing roadway, upgrading Americans with Disabilities requirements at every street corner between 10th Street and Stampede Avenue, replacing broken curb and gutter and sidewalk, and upgrading wiring at traffic signals.

The project begins at US14/16/20 milepost 51.78 at the intersection of 10th Street and Sheridan Avenue in front of the Park County Courthouse, and it proceeds 1.20 miles on US 14/16/20 to the Intersection of 17th Street and Stampede Avenue on Greybull Hill.

Phase 2 of the project, by contract, starts Aug. 24, 2020, and all work must be completed from Alger Avenue to 14th Street through grinding and texturing prior to winter shut down. 

Phase 3 of the project, by contract, proceeds from Alger Avenue to the end of the project and must be completed through concrete grinding and texturing prior to June 15, 2021.

The project will be shut down from June 16, 2021 through Aug. 23, 2021.

Phase 4 of the project, by contract, requires all remaining work to be completed by Sept. 30, 2021.

Prime contractor S&S Builders, LLC, of Gillette will be paid a $200,000 incentive if all project work is complete by June 15, 2021.

Contract completion date is Sept. 30, 2021.

During work, Frost said a maximum of two intersections may be closed at any one time. "Work will be completed on one side of the street while two-way traffic is carried on the other half," he said. "Left turns will not be allowed through the work zone. Parking may not be allowed through the work zone, and a 10-foot width restriction will be in effect."  

By contract, S&S Builders has a public information specialist on the project who will be working with businesses and answering questions and providing schedule updates.  

S&S Builders, LLC, was awarded the Sheridan Avenue concrete rehabilitation project last November by the Wyoming Transportation Commission.
