A major reconstruction project will begin along a mile-and-a-half stretch of Robinson Road this Monday, officials with the Wyoming Department of Transportation say.

“That project will run from Poison Spider Road do to the Green Valley Village subdivision to the south,” WYDOT spokesperson Jeff Goetz said. “We’re going to widen that road, put a new road base and road bed in there, and expand it to where it will have one travel lane in either direction plus a center turn lane.”

Goetz said, during reconstruction, through traffic will not be permitted on affected portions of the road.

“A lot of the residents will have to access their homes from Wyoming Highway 220 from the south,” Goetz said. “As this project moves along, and as the crews work more to the south from Poison Spider Road, we’ll start opening those stretches up.”

The reconstructed road will also feature four-foot shoulders and curb and gutter. A new pathway will also be constructed next to the road.

Goetz said the project should be completed by the end of the year.
