Positive progress was made this week on the $13.96 million North Federal Boulevard project in Riverton, and it’s setting the stage for the project work zone to grow to six blocks in length beginning Tuesday.
All work is dependent on favorable weather.
To that end, S&S Builders, LLC, and its subcontractors will be preparing North Federal Boulevard, between East Washington and Main Street, for the first major concrete pour of the project next week.
And, Monday evening, April 23, concrete demolition is scheduled to begin in the North Federal/East Park Avenue intersection. A six-hour closure of the East Park Avenue intersection is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.Tuesday as workers remove concrete in the East Park/North Federal intersection, and work crews will return the intersection to a gravel driving surface. The East Park intersection will reopen to east- and west-bound traffic Tuesday afternoon.
Demolition of concrete is scheduled to continue between the East Park and East Roosevelt intersections on Tuesday, April 24.
“The work zone of this project will grow by three blocks this coming week, double its current size,” said Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Robert Scheidemantel of Riverton. “Drivers are reminded of the 20 mph work zone speed limit and no left-hand-turn requirements within the work zone. We appreciate the help from local law enforcement in helping us keep traffic moving through the North Federal Boulevard work zone.”
Citizens and businesses are reminded of the weekly public meeting at 10 a.m.Thursday, April 26, in Riverton City Hall.
