Variable Speed Limit Signs Installed on WYO 28

Motorists in central and southern Wyoming may notice new signage along a state highway known for its windy conditions, difficult weather and high-volume truck traffic.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation has installed a series of electronic variable speed limit signs along a 34-mile section of Wyoming Highway 28 in the South Pass area from Lander to Farson.

WYDOT spokesperson Dave Kingham says the signs will improve driving safety on WYO 28.

The goal of putting these signs there is to allow for our transportation management center to tailor the speed limit on that section to the actual weather and road conditions,” Kingham said.

On highway sections as short as two miles with variable speed limit technology, WYDOT officials can alter the speed limit of troublesome road sections in five-mile per hour increments down to 30 miles per hour.

Kingham says Wyoming motorists can expect to see more variable speed limit signs throughout the state.

We actually have funding to do some additional sections, but we have not decided which or where those sections will be located yet,” Kingham said. “Those decisions are based on traffic volume, crash history and frequency of severe weather.”

WYDOT first installed variable speed limit signs on a 128-mile stretch of Interstate 80 in 2008.
