Public update meeting Jan. 15 in Lovell on Sage Creek highway/bridge project between Lovell and Cowley

January 14, 2019

Lovell citizens and others are invited to a Jan. 15 public update meeting on the $11.7 million Sage Creek highway and bridge improvement project between Lovell and Cowley on US 310.

The 6 p.m. meeting will be held at the Lovell Community Center, 1925 US 310, just west of Lovell.

"Everyone is invited," said Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Michael Miller of Basin. "There will be a short presentation at 6 p.m., and then we'll break into an open house to allow people to ask questions and visit with the prime contractor and WYDOT."

Miller said Shoshone River bridge improvements will continue through the winter, weather permitting, as well as removal of the old Sage Creek and railroad bridges. "Drivers should expect traffic delays over the Shoshone River bridge when girders are being set," he said. "Chip sealing, seeding and reclamation is scheduled for this spring and summer."

The $11.7 million Sage Creek highway and bridge improvement project consists of road widening, bridge widening over the Shoshone River, replacement of the Sage Creek and railroad bridges, asphalt paving, and other work.
Prime contractor is S&S Builders, LLC, of Gillette. Contract completion date is Oct. 31, 2019.
