WYDOT Projects in Natrona County

The following is a list of WYDOT projects around Natrona County starting this Spring.  Items will be updated as more information becomes available.  Each of these projects will impact traffic; mostly though lane and speed reductions.

  • Salt Creek Highway (Wyoming 254) will be closed at its south junction with West Yellowstone Highway beginning at 8:00 am, Monday June 5th through 6:00 pm, Wednesday, June 7th to allow for the replacement of the railroad crossing.
  • CY Ave - Wyoming Boulevard to Robertson Road
    • New asphalt, new left turn lanes and signal upgrades (3)
    • Under way - plan to be completed by end of June 2017 - all lanes to reopen
    • Will be work after this time but it will be out of the travel lanes
  • Following this, Knife River will be resurfacing on Old Yellowstone Highway/Old Glenrock Highway
    • New asphalt - mill and overlay from I-25 bridge/campground area (near Rocky Mountain Power) to Hat Six interchange
    • Traffic to one lane, either direction - speed reduction
    • No access to businesses to close - though may be times where crossovers are closed
    • Plan to be completed by Aug. 21st eclipse - all traffic lanes to be reopened by then
    • This project is similar to the current CY project
  • 12th Street/Wyoming Boulevard intersection
    • Intersection reconstruction - concrete
    • Work to begin June 7th - with water line work beginning on west side of 12th and Wyoming Boulevard
    • New water lines through intersection - starting from west side of intersection working eastward (water line is under 12th Street)
    • Traffic will be reduced to one lane, either direction
    • During course of construction there will be times of no access to 12th Street from Wyoming Boulevard. Also times of no left turns at intersections
    • Plan to use alternate route to get to 12th Street
    • Pedestrians, use north side sidewalk along 12th Street - This will be marked
    • The plan is to also have this project substantially completed by the Aug. 21st eclipse - all lanes open

None of these projects should interfere with the school schedule this fall.   

The 12th Street/Wyoming Boulevard project will begin June 5th - with water line work - so there may be some traffic disruption at the intersection on the last two days of school.

At this point, WYDOT is planning to stop working around the eclipse (Aug. 17 - 23) to help minimize traffic issues.  This would include contractor work that might still be under way at this time.
