WYDOT installing variable speed limit signs along section of I-80

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) will install several variable speed limit signs along a 30-mile section of Interstate 80 in Sweetwater County.

The Wyoming Transportation Commission awarded Advanced Electrical Contracting, of Sheridan, a $1 million contract for the work in the eastbound and westbound lanes. The commission awarded that and eight other contracts during its recent meeting.

For the I-80 project, crews will upgrade the regular speed limit signs with the variable speed limit signs. They will also install weather stations and make electrical upgrades in those areas.

The variable speed limit signs and weather stations will help WYDOT reduce traffic flow during wintry conditions and other conditions where speed limits need to be reduced for safety purposes. The contract completion date is June 30, 2021.

The other contracts the commission awarded included sign replacement, pipe work and line painting.

S & L Industrial, of Cowley, was the lowest bidder on an $879,849 sign replacement contract. Crews will perform the work along various locations on I-80 in Albany and Carbon counties. WYDOT is having the work done because the signs are in need of updating. The contract completion date is Oct. 31, 2020.

Wilson Brothers Construction Inc., of Cowley, won a $797,940 contract for work on cleaning out and repairing corroded pipes at various locations along US 287 south of Lander in Fremont County.

Crews will clean out and line some of the pipes and replace others. The contract completion date is March 31, 2021.

The commission awarded Signs Up LTD, of Webster, Iowa, a $713,450 contract for the lowest bid on a sign contract in Campbell, Carbon, Converse, Goshen, Johnson, Natrona, Niobrara and Platte counties.

Crews will install “no passing” and “pass with care” signs at several locations in those counties. The contract completion date is Sept. 30, 2020.
