Paving crew working near Buffalo Bill Reservoir on U.S. 14/16/20

A Wyoming Department of Transportation asphalt paving crew is working this week on U.S. 14/16/20 near Buffalo Bill Reservoir west of Cody.

The paving crew is scheduled to patch areas of the roadway with more than 3,700 tons of hot-mix asphalt on U.S. 14/16/20 near Buffalo Bill Reservoir through July 9.

All work is dependent upon favorable weather.

The paving crew will shut down its patching operation west of Cody between July 1-5 for the Independence Day holiday.

The WYDOT hot-mix asphalt patching work is scheduled to continue July 10 between Cody and Meeteetse on Wyoming 120 with nearly 2,000 tons of hot-mix asphalt paving.

The WYDOT crew is then scheduled to move east of Lovell on U.S. 14A about July 17 and to U.S. 310 between Greybull and Lovell about July 23. The crew's summer work is scheduled to continue on U.S. 14/16/20 between Greybull and Cody about July 25, and on Wyoming 31 near Hyattville beginning about July 29. 

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.”
