(Fremont County, WY) – Despite afternoon thunderstorms and some hail, fog sealing of highway shoulders is happening in Fremont County.

Fog sealing will be complete on May 5, if the weather cooperates, on US287/WY789 and WY132 (Blue Sky Highway).

Fog sealing of highway shoulders is rescheduled for tomorrow on WY131 (Sinks Canyon Road).

Fog sealing uses quick-drying oil to seal highway shoulders, and is part of the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s summer chip-sealing maintenance program.

“We’re asking people to avoid driving, running or bicyclingon the fog-sealed highway shoulders for 24 hours,” said WYDOT fog sealing foreman Tyd Erickson of Meeteetse. “All work is dependent upon favorable weather..”

“These roadways will be chip-sealed later this summer,” Erickson said.

WYDOT’ssummer chip-sealing work, which includes fog sealing, is one of the most cost-effective ways used to maintain highways in Wyoming.
