Contracts totaling $35.5 million for seven highway projects around the state were awarded by the Wyoming Transportation Commission during its July teleconference meeting.

McGarvin-Moberly Construction of Worland won the largest of the contracts with a low bid of $12.2 million for milling off deteriorating pavement and replacing it with new pavement on 12 miles of the westbound lanes of Interstate 80 just east of Wamsutter.

McGarvin-Moberly also won a $7.3 million contract to remove deteriorating pavement and lay down new pavement on nearly 7 miles of Interstate 25 at Chugwater. Rehabilitation of 10 bridges on the highway section also will be included.

Lander’s High Country Construction was the low bidder at $11 million for widening and resurfacing nearly 7 miles of WYO 59 between Weston and the Montana border. The existing highway, which carries heavy industrial traffic to and from oilfields in North Dakota, has no shoulders. The project will add 6-foot safety shoulders to the highway and replace two bridges.

Sections of nine city streets in Evanston will get microsurfacing or pavement overlays under a $1.7 million contract awarded to Intermountain Slurry Seal of Watsonville,

Wilson Brothers Construction of Cowley will stabilize the Tift Slide on US 14 about 13 miles south of Sheridan under a $1.1 million contract that carries a Nov. 30 completion date. DRM Inc. of Gillette will stabilize the Salt Creek Slide on US 85 about 7 miles north of Newcastle under a $1 million contract.

The Hay Creek Bridge on Crook County Road 265 will be replaced under a $660,000 contract won by S&S Builders of Gillette. Cheyenne’s Reiman Corp. submitted the low bid of $455,000 to repair the overpass at the I-25 Nimmo Road Interchange, which was damaged in February when it was struck by an oversize load.

WYDOT has canceled its August bid letting and contract awards due to uncertainty about the availability of federal funding.
