Shoshoni Bypass Set To Reopen On Monday; Construction Then Moves North
The nearly two-month construction project on the Salt Creek Highway bridge over U.S. Highway 20-26, known as the Shoshoni Bypass, should end on Monday, according to a news release from the Wyoming Department of Transportation on Thursday.
That, of course, depends on the weather, according to the news release from WYDOT spokesman Jeff Goetz.
Barring significant rain, the north side-ramps and the bridge itself over the Shoshoni Bypass should be open for traffic. The opened ramps will allow access to areas south of the bypass, Goetz said.
The opened bridge and ramps doesn't end the entire project, of course.
Besides repaving the Shoshoni Bypass, the project will expand Salt Creek Highway to five lanes through the area.
Continue to pay attention in all construction zones and follow posted speed limits.
The entire project is scheduled for completion by Oct. 31.
