Cheyenne contractors awarded $2.3M for road work in Campbell, Laramie counties

Transportation Commission awards nearly $6.8 million in contracts in July.


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Two Cheyenne contractors were awarded a combined $2.3 million after the Wyoming Transportation Commission approved their bids for road work in Campbell and Laramie counties.

Cheyenne-based Simon Contractors was awarded its $1.1 million bid for work on a half-mile stretch of Wyoming Highway 387 in Campbell County. The work will include paving, traffic control, grading, fencing, milling and other work. The contracted completion date is July 31, 2024, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation.

Funding for the project is primarily made up of federal dollars, WYDOT said.

Primarily funded with state dollars this month is a combined project involving structure work, traffic control, paving and other work on a portion of Interstate 80 and Wyoming Highway 212 in Laramie County. Cheyenne-based Reiman Corp. was awarded a $1.2 million bid for that project, with a contracted completion date of June 30, 2024.

The awards were announced Wednesday as part of the Transportation Commission’s latest round of contract approvals during its July 20 regular business meeting, a news release states.

A $2.7 million bid was also awarded to Sheridan-based Advanced Electrical Contracting Inc. for a project involving electrical work, traffic control, sidewalk, curb and gutter and other work in various locations within Carbon, Converse, Goshen, Johnson, Natrona and Platte counties. The contracted completion date is Oct. 31, 2024.

The commission also awarded a nearly $1.8 million bid to Casper-based Oftedal Construction Inc. for a combined project involving seeding, erosion control, traffic control, grading and other work on US Highway 14/16/20 in Park County. The contracted completion date is Oct. 31, 2023.

Both of those projects are primarily funded with federal dollars, WYDOT said.

Almost all WYDOT projects are awarded to the lowest bid.
