CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Crews with Simon Contractors and the Wyoming Department of Transportation have begun work along Interstate 80 in Cheyenne.

This work is a continuation of a project that began in 2023 and involves concrete slab replacement and a new asphalt overlay. Other work includes sealing joints and milling and paving ramps and I-80 later this spring and into summer. Work is anticipated to be completed by late summer.

Motorists on the interstate should expect possible delays due to single-lane shifts through construction zones and lowered speed limits. A 12-foot width restriction will be in place for interstate traffic during this project.

All WYDOT project scheduling is subject to change. Adverse weather or material availability could impact ongoing project plans.
