CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Crews with the Wyoming Department of Transportation, Reiman Corp. and Aztec Construction will be closing a portion of Whitney Road between US Highway 30/East Lincolnway and the US30 service road on Tuesday, weather permitting.

Crews will be removing surfacing, placing pipe and bringing the roadway back up to grade with temporary surfacing until paving operations can commence.

During the closure, the north service road will be open as a detour for drivers. The road is anticipated to be closed for a week.

WYDOT encourages motorists to obey all posted signs, flaggers and other traffic control devices and avoid distractions like cellphones while driving through work zones.
