Highway 28 to see asphalt overlay, other improvements near Red Canyon Overlook
Red Canyon road improvements scheduled to begin April 23
Scheduled work includes grading, draining, milling asphalt pavement, placing crushed gravel base, asphalt pavement surfacing, a chip seal, installation of guardrail and cable median barrier, and other work on .52 miles of Wyoming 28 beginning at milepost 59.50 between Farson and Lander in Red Canyon.
“The contract calls for a 35-day construction window once work begins, with the exception of the chip seal and seeding,” according to Erik Smith, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Lander. “Motorists should expect traffic delays of up to 20 minutes during the days, as the highway will be restricted to one-way traffic.”
Contract completion date is Sept. 30, 2012.
