Transportation Commission Awards $21 Million in Highway Contracts in September

CHEYENNE – Motorists traveling along I-80 and I-25 in Wyoming will soon see additional improvements to road surfaces along several sections. The Wyoming Transportation Commission at its meeting on Sept. 15 awarded three contracts for surfacing work on two sections of I-80 and one section of I-25. The surfacing work contracts were among nine projects the commission awarded totaling $21 million. Mountain Construction Co. of Lovell came in as the lowest bidder on the two projects on I-80 and the project on I-25. The company won a $5.5 million contract for a mill and overlay project on 10 miles of road in the eastbound lane of I-80 between Cheyenne and Pine Bluffs in Laramie County. The work will also include adding a wearing course to the surface, which helps with friction and drainage. Crews will also be working on the on and off ramps, and the turnarounds, which are used by maintenance and Patrol to move from the eastbound and westbound lanes. The contract completion date is June 30, 2018.
