Traffic soon to be back to normal on I-80 at Pine Bluffs
November 9, 2017
Eastbound lane of I-80 is scheduled to be open sometime this week. Traffic should be back to normal by Friday or Saturday.
"The I806199-Pine Bluffs Marginal project is coming along well," per Kevin Erickson, Resident Engineer for Wyoming Department of Transportation. The prime contractor SEMA Construction, Inc. will have everything that is necessary, to safely open the eastbound lane of I-80 for the traveling public. Some minor task are still being worked on, and will be throughout the winter/spring months, however the project is on task for the completion date, August 31, 2018. Additional paving will need to be completed next summer when warmer temperatures allow, at this time there is no set date for additional paving. Giving the weather conditions, paving will begin around June, 2018 to reach the completion date.
"As expected with any project this large, there have been setbacks. SEMA has done a great job overcoming some of the problems encountered, so the completion date is on track," says Erickson.
