Public open house held to discuss Hill Street Improvement Project

(Riverton, WY) – The city of Riverton Public Works Department held a public open house yesterday, April 20, to discuss the upcoming Hill Street Improvement Project.

The project was started when the Fix Our Roads Citizen Committee prioritized the use of 1% optional tax funds toward Hill Street’s improvement back in October of 2019.

Hill Street sees an average traffic count of almost 3,000 vehicles per day, and has been exhibiting degrading asphalt, pavement corrugation, and failing curb and gutter.

The project was designed by Inberg-Miller Engineers, and construction will include sections of full-depth street repair, curb and gutter replacement, installation of a sewer line, and an upgrade to the water transmission line.

Construction is scheduled to start May 3, and will be completed on or before September 15. The roadway will be closed the week of May 3 through approximately July 15.

While residents on the roadway will be able to get to their driveways throughout most of the project, access may be limited on the days when concrete will need to set while utility trenches are being dug.

Residents may be asked to park in a different location on those days, but will be given at least 24 hour notice from the contractors when these days occur.

The contractors will begin with water and sewer utility work first, followed by concrete and asphalt placement. This will result waterline interruptions on certain days.

These interruptions should only be for a few hours during the daytime, and once again, affected residents will be given at least a 24 hour notice before the interruptions occur.

Temporary water supply trucks may also be made available to any residents or businesses affected by these interruptions.

Public Works Director Kyle Butterfield wanted to stress that the engineers and project managers are more than willing to cooperate with anyone affected by the construction, and everything will be done in their capability to meet the needs of the roadway’s users, residents, and construction teams.

For any questions or concerns, contact Kyle, or Construction Coordinator and Project Representative Monty Nordwick at 307-857-7761.
