Casper companies win highway contracts

June 26, 2012 in News

Contracts totaling $28.9 million for nine highway projects around the state were awarded by the Wyoming Transportation Commission during its June meeting in Cheyenne.

Two Casper companies submitted winning bids:

Turn lanes will be added to US 189 at its intersection with Haystack Mine Road, and 2.3 miles of the road leading to the new Haystack coal mine northeast of Evanston will be paved under a $4.4 million contract won by McMurry Ready-Mix of Casper. The project is being undertaken through the Industrial Road Program, a state-funded program to help communities with economic development efforts. All the paving work is required to be done by Nov. 1, with a chip seal and reclamation work to follow next year and a final completion date of Aug. 31, 2013.

Casper Electric submitted the low bid of $507,000 to install electronic message signs, a Web camera and a weather information system at locations along WYO 220 and WYO 487 by June 30, 2013. Two of the electronic message signs will be installed on WYO 220 on each side of its junction with WYO 487. A third sign will be installed on WYO 487 at the top of Shirley Rim north of Medicine Bow. A weather sensor and a Web camera also will be installed at that location. The contract completion date is June 30, 2013.

Casper Electric also won a $295,000 contract for installations of sign lighting and flashing beacons at various locations on highways in Big horn, Fremont, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie counties by Sept. 30.
