UPDATE:  Due to recent weather conditions, this work has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 12.

GREEN RIVER, WYOMING — The Wyoming Department of Transportation, along with contract crews from Casper Electric, will be continuing work along Uinta Drive as part of the signal and intersection upgrade project.  On Tuesday, April 4, crews will install the overhanging signal arms at the intersection of Uinta Drive and 2nd Street. 

This work will require traffic to be moved to one side of Uinta and placed in a single lane in each direction near the intersection.  The traffic signals will be shut down and the intersection will be controlled by flaggers.  These closures will take place in the evening hours, from roughly 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.  

The signal timing will vary under construction, so WYDOT crews are asking drivers to be aware of the changes and be patient with the signal timing.  There will be some delays in signal timing while crews continue work on the new traffic signals. 

Sidewalk, curb and gutter work will begin over the next couple weeks, so drivers are advised to expect daily lane closures and intermittent traffic control during working hours.  

Local traffic is advised to avoid the area if possible and expect brief delays.  Motorists will continue to see intermittent lane closures throughout the project area.  

WYDOT would like to remind drivers to drive safely, put your phone down, be aware of roadside flaggers and obey all roadside signs and closures.  For more information on road closures and weather conditions, please visit http://www.wyoroad.info

The Green River Signal project work encompasses new traffic signal pole installation, new traffic detecting sensor installation, conduit drilling and installation, and ADA and sidewalk upgrades. 

The completion date for the project is Oct. 31st of this year.
