Prime contractor on the $1.4 million project is Advanced Electric LLC, of Casper.

The new digital message signs/web cameras are located at:

  • US 14/16/20 (milepost 48.39), about 2 miles west of Cody; 
  • US 26/287 (milepost 8.1), about 8 miles east of Moran Junction near the Blackrock Ranger Station (not yet operational);
  • US 16/20 (milepost 202.87), about 2 miles south of Greybull;
  • US 16 (milepost 3.45), about 3 1/2 miles east of Worland;
  • US 20 (milepost 164.17), about 1 mile south of  Worland;
  • US 20 (milepost 127.86), about 5 1/2 miles south of Thermopolis near Wind River Canyon;
  • US 20 (milepost 101.18), about 1 mile north of Shoshoni.

Installation of a US 20 relay tower is also part of the communications project (milepost 128.99), about 4 miles south of Thermopolis.

"Work started last August, and installation and activation of the message boards was delayed due to COVID-19," said Kaia Tharp, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Thermopolis. "The 30-day test of the message boards is nearly complete, and when testing is complete, the new digital message signs will be online. Web camera images are available at"
