Gookin Overpass Closed

Date: 05/08/2014 


The Gookin overpass bridge has been closed to traffic due to damages caused by a truck carrying a track hoe on the interstate.   The track hoe being transported made contact with the bridge after attempting to pass under it, damaging the girders. 

The bridge will remain closed indefinitely until WYDOT crews can properly inspect and evaluate the damage. The bridge connects the Foothill Blvd. service road to the Sunset Drive service road on the west end of Rock Springs. 

WYDOT would like to remind drivers to slow down in work zones and be alert and cautious of roadside workers.
