Work underway at I-25 - I-80 interchange in Cheyenne

Date: 06/05/2015 

Work is underway on rehabilitation of the Interstate 25 northbound overpass over Interstate 80 in Cheyenne.

Travelers encouraged to use U.S. 20 during West River Road (Wyoming 433) highway improvement project

Date: 04/07/2015 

A pair of newly installed signs on U.S. 20 encourage drivers traveling through Worland to consider avoiding a 3.48-mile highway improvement project on West River Road (Wyoming 433).   "Pipe installation and some dirt work is progressing throughout the length of the project," said Dan McAfee, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Worland. "The work zone is mostly within a narrow state right-of-way, so traffic is being delayed for up to 20 minutes."   McAfee said using U.S. 20 during the reconstruction of Wyoming 433 is "good common sense."   "We are encouraging people passing...
