"We're looking at mid-June for hard closures," said Wyoming Dept. of Transportation Public Relations Specialist Cody Beers following the meeting.
Work is wrapping up on the west end of Main, with traffic switching to the south lanes in recent days and work to replace curb and gutter removed as part of widening the westbound lanes commencing this week.
Final concrete work in the westbound lanes will also be done.
The west end work will wrap up in "1½ to two weeks, depending on the concrete," Beers
Water and sewer work is also continuing on the east end of Main and will soon reach the intersection of Pennsylvania and Main.
Once work at that intersection is completed, the block-by-block, leap-frogging phase II of the project will begin.
The Pennsylvania intersection will be needed to divert traffic one block to the north.
Beers noted that Kim Wilson of Wilson Brothers Construction complimented the Lovell Police Department for help with slowing drivers in the construction zones.
said construction officials are concerned about an incident over the weekend during which traffic control cones were moved to direct traffic to a side street.
"If people are caught it would be a $750 fine and a heavy-duty liability for messing with traffic control if a crash occurs," Beers
"The cones are maintained 24/7 and we're getting increased help from the Lovell Police Dept.
to keep an eye on it."
also noted that, starting this weekend, Wilson Brothers
will begin working every other weekend.
