CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The WYO 223/Terry Ranch Road project has been delayed, the Wyoming Department of Transportation reported.
The new projected start date will be released once details have been finalized.
Crews with Reiman Corp. and WYDOT were supposed to begin structure and paving work in the area on Monday, March 20.
WYO 223/Terry Ranch Road runs between Interstate 25 and US Highway 85 south of Cheyenne.
Work will begin with a total bridge replacement over the Union Pacific Railroad at milepost .86. The new structure will be longer to accommodate future UPRR tracks and widened to accommodate 12-foot lanes and 4-foot shoulders.
WYO 223/Terry Ranch Road will be closed to through traffic for the duration of the bridge construction. Motorists needing to get to I-25 will need to utilize detours on US Highway 85 to either College Drive or I-80.
Other work will include milling, asphalt pavement overlay and a chip seal. Approaches will receive a mill, overlay and fog seal. The I-25 service road running from WYO 223/Terry Ranch Road south to the Colorado border will receive a chip seal. Work will also include delineation replacements and sign upgrades.
All accesses to residences and businesses will remain open throughout the project. During paving operations, flaggers will be present to maintain traffic flow through the residential and business areas.
Motorists are encouraged to obey all posted signs, flaggers and other traffic control and avoid distractions like cellphones while driving through work zones.
The work is scheduled to be completed by late 2023.
All WYDOT project scheduling is subject to change, including due to adverse weather or material availability.
