All work is dependent upon favorable weather.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience on this project, especially concerning the variety of closures which have helped accelerate construction,” according to Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Robert Scheidemantel of Riverton. “We are asking drivers on North Federal to avoid making left-hand turns in the work zone, and to please slow down. The speed limit inside the work zone is 20 mph.”
Citizens and businesses are reminded of the weekly public meeting at 10 a.m. every Thursday in Riverton City Hall.
