The concrete rehabilitation project on Riverton’s Main Street is 0.50 miles in length between North Federal Boulevard and North 1st Street. The project includes concrete milling, asphalt paving, and curb, gutter and Americans with Disabilities Act ramp repairs.
Prime contractor on the project is 71 Construction of Riverton. By contract, all curb, gutter and ADA improvements must be completed by the contractor prior to street milling and paving operations.
The project is scheduled to begin in early April.
By contract, project work is required to be phased so that 2-way traffic is maintained on half of the roadway at all times. Intersection closures are planned on half of Main Street during this quick-moving project.
Project completion date is Oct. 31, 2021.
Project questions may be directed to WYDOT Resident Engineer Robert Scheidemantel, P.E., at (307) 856-1341, or by email at [email protected].
