WYDOT representative Cody Beers also stated:

“Weather has been a factor. The last two snowstorms have created a lot of mud, but the workers are resilient and are adapting to the typical springtime conditions. So, progress in Riverton and Lander has been slow, but methodical and steady. WYDOT apologizes for the inconvenience.”

Project questions may be directed to WYDOT Resident Engineer Erik Smith, P.E., at (307) 332-4151, or by email at [email protected].
