Rock Springs, WY (6/13/19) – The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) will be closing all access to Grant Street starting on Monday, June 17, 2019, for roughly three days. Crews will be installing a manhole on North Center Street. Due to the nature of the work and to keep motorists and work crews safe, WYDOT will be reducing traffic to two lanes, one lane in each direction. Due to the reduction in lanes and traffic congestion, WYDOT and contract crews must close access to Grant Street while the manhole work is completed.
“There will be so much congestion that no one would be able to turn off Grant Street onto Center Street safely, so we had to close it completely,” WYDOT resident engineer Pete Stinchcomb said.
The completion date for this project is October 31, 2019. The project was awarded to Casper Electric, Inc in January. All work schedules are subject to change. WYDOT would like to remind drivers to slow down in work zones and be alert and cautious of roadside workers.
