A Wyoming Department of Transportation chip sealing crew will continue summer work during the week of July 10, 2016.
About 2.5 miles of work occurred on Wyoming 37 near Lovell on Monday, July 11. The crew is scheduled to move the chip sealing operation to 13.79 miles of Wyoming 30 between Burlington and Basin on Tuesday, July 12, and to 3.66 miles of Wyoming 433 (West River Road) between Basin and Worland on Monday, July 18.
All chip sealing is dependent upon favorable weather.
On Aug. 1, WYDOT chip sealing is scheduled on 15.47 miles of U.S. 26/287 in the Town of Dubois and west to the Shoshone National Forest boundary, according to WYDOT chip sealing foreman Shane Wilson of Thermopolis.
Following the work in the Dubois area, chip sealing is scheduled on 11.99 miles of U.S. 26 between Riverton and Kinnear beginning Aug. 9.
“Please drive carefully and obey reduced speed limits near chip sealing operations,” said WYDOT public relations specialist Cody Beers of Riverton. “Crews will be working during the days and into the nights, and safe driving and safe work operations are very important throughout these projects. Please be patient as this important work is being completed.”
“The chip seals will be swept at the end of each day, but some loose rock may still be present. Drivers are asked to slow down in these areas in order to prevent windshield damage after operations have ceased for the day,” Beers said.
