The Wyoming Department of Transportation has been awarded $20 million in federal funding to help recover repair costs for numerous Wyoming roadways damaged by natural disaster during the spring and early summer of 2011. The reimbursement was announced earlier this month by the U.S. Department of  Transportation. In total the state will receive $20.8 million to reimburse the state for work undertaken on an emergency or urgent basis at nearly 60 sites located in 13 counties.

The repair sites covered by the award include the Dry Sandstone slide on WYO 70 near Battle Pass between Baggs and Encampment, the Double Draw slide on US 26-89 in the Snake River Canyon southwest of Jackson and the washout of  WYO 130 at Brush Creek east of  Saratoga.

Other highway sections damaged last year, with repair costs now eligible for reimbursement with federal funds include US 14 in Shell Canyon east of Greybull, the US14A causeway over Bighorn Lake east of Lovell, a landslide area on I-90 south of Sheridan and the landslide on US14 near Sundance.
