US 287 project made possible by increased fuel tax revenue

Date: 04/01/2014 


Casper’s Oftedal Construction was the low bidder at $4.3 million for a contract to rebuild a 2.3-mile section of US 287 at Diversion Dam Junction west of Riverton. The work will address problems with unstable soils under the highway by installing three layers of geogrid, a heavy plastic mesh, in the soil before the road section is rebuilt. The project will be paid for with revenue from the 10-cent fuel tax increase, and the contract completion date is June 30, 2015.
