Wyoming Business Report

By Staff Reporter

The Wyoming Transportation Commission awarded contracts totaling nearly $20.3 million for 13 projects around the state during its February meeting in Cheyenne.

New parking areas to allow vehicles on Interstate 80 to safely install or remove tire chains for crossing the hills known as the Three Sisters east of Evanston will be built under a $6.3 million contract awarded to low bidder H-K Contractors of Idaho Falls. The contract completion date is June 30, 2013.

A truck parking area at the Fort Bridger Interchange will have space for up to 100 trucks when needed during highway closures or when the chain law is in effect. New chaining areas just east of Evanston will be parallel to the highway to allow vehicles to pull off and safely install or remove chains. The area for eastbound vehicles will accommodate up to 20 trucks installing chains, and the area for westbound traffic will accommodate up to 10 trucks removing chains.

Lovell’s Mountain Construction submitted the low bid of $2.6 million for patching work to preserve the pavement on highways in Big Horn, Fremont, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie counties by Sept. 30.
