Widening Of Wyo 220 Set To Start This Summer

The widening of Wyoming Hwy 220 west of Casper has been moved up on the road construction calender. Wyoming Department of Transportation officials held an open house Wednesday evening to answer questions on the just over 5 mile, 28 million dollar project, that could start by July.

Jack Stone, resident engineer in Casper, says the construction extends the current four lanes that end just short of the future west bypass intersection near Gothberg road.

“And then it runs all the way down to just short of the Narrows. This will be a divided four lane when we’re done. Similar to what we have right at the edge of town right now.”

Stone says all intersections will remain open throughout the two years of construction.

“We’ll create a temporary access for each one of the land owners to access the highway easily. At the end of 2012 the west bound lanes will be complete and in 2013 we’ll put traffic on the westbound lanes to reconstruct the eastboundĀ  so there won’t be too much disruption to traffic.”

Installation of overhead dynamic message signs, facing both directions will go up at approximately Gothberg Road.

The contract goes to bid on June 9th. Stone suggests they may be ready to begin by the end of June.
