WTC awards highway project contracts


Contracts totaling $12.8 million for six highway projects around the state, including two to be funded with revenue from the fuel tax increase, were awarded by the Wyoming Transportation Commission during its March meeting in Cheyenne.

Cheyenne’s Simon Contractors and Subsidiaries won the largest of the contracts with a bid of $3.2 million for improvements to nearly 4 miles of US 26 (Valley Road) in Torrington.

Simon also was the low bidder at $2.88 million for a contract for patching on nearly 10 miles of highway sections in Albany and Laramie counties by Oct. 31, 2015.

Gillette’s S&S Builders won a $1.7 million contract for rehabilitation work on two bridges in the Cheyenne area. The I-25 northbound bridge over I-80 and the College Drive bridge over the Union Pacific rail lines north of Campstool Road will get repairs and modified concrete pavement overlays on their decks. The work is expected to be done by Oct. 31, 2015.

Rumble strips will be installed to improve safety on highway sections around the state under a $1.1 million contract won by low bidder Surface Preparation Technologies of Mechanicsburg, Penn. The longest of the highway sections to get the rumble strips will be on I-80 from the Sweetwater-Carbon County line to east Cheyenne. The contract completion date is June 30, 2016.
