WYDOT Construction Projects     

The following road construction projects are managed by the Wyoming Department of Transportation. 
For details on the project and current closure and restriction information, please visit the Wyoming Department of Transportation web site

Road/Street  Area affected
Expected Completion date
Poplar Street Bridge

Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, March 6, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on a portion of Poplar Street (WYO 220) in Casper.  The project should last through this summer.

  • Traffic will be reduced to the two outer lanes across the bridge over the BNSF railroad tracks, just north of 1st Street and west of downtown Casper.  This lane reduction is necessary to allow crews to install concrete barriers down the center of the bridge and should be completed by Friday.
  • Once barriers are in place crews will move traffic to the southbound lanes (again one lane, either direction) to resurface the northbound lanes. It’s expected the resurfacing should take one day.
  • Traffic will then be moved to the northbound lanes to allow for bridge deck reconstruction on the west side of the bridge.

The lane reductions will start just north of the 1st Street intersection south of the bridge and on the north side just south of River Cross Road.  Throughout this project, traffic from 1st Street north will remain reduced to one lane, either direction. This is likely to cause severe congestion.

Alternate routes are suggested such as Salt Creek Highway.

Bridge work includes widening the structure to allow for the sidewalks as well as rehabilitating the structure itself.  

Start Date:  Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Completion Date:  October 2018
I-25 Bridge Rehabilitation  Work will begin on Interstate 25 from Curtis Street to just beyond Poplar Street in Casper.  This project will rehabilitate the interstate bridges through town.

Initially, (Monday, March 19th) crews will close the passing lanes in both directions to begin removing the center barriers in order to make crossover lanes.  Traffic will be reduced to the outside or driving lanes.  Access to the ramps will be maintained, however, the speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph.  This phase is expected to take about one week to complete.

Once the traffic crossovers are in place, crews will move traffic to the northbound lanes, one lane either direction so work can be on the southbound bridges.  Access to the on and off ramps will be maintained, with the expectation of the northbound exit ramp at Bryan Stock Trail - traffic wishing to exit at Bryan Stock Trail must use the McKinley Street exit ramp.  All on ramp traffic will be required to stop prior to merging onto the interstate.  Interstate traffic has the right-of-way.

The speed limit will remain at 45 mph during construction. 
Start Date:  Monday, March 19, 2018

Completion Date:  October 2018
Wyoming Blvd Concrete Work

Beginning Monday, March 19, work will begin on Wyoming Boulevard (WYO 258) between Old Glenrock Highway (Yellowstone) and Gannett Street on Casper’s east side, to replace sections of deteriorating concrete.

Initially, traffic will be switched to the southbound lanes; one lane either direction plus a center turn lane, to allow for work on the northbound lanes. Once completed, traffic will be switched to the northbound lanes so that work on the southbound lanes can begin. It’s expected the entire project will take eight weeks, weather dependent, to complete.

Traffic switching and lane reductions will begin near Gannett Street on the south end of the project and continue to near the Old Glenrock Highway. All business accesses will remain open. 

This will cause traffic congestion throughout the area, especially at the intersection of Wyoming Boulevard and 2nd Street, as well as truck congestion in the area of Legion Lane. Alternate routes are suggestion during this time.

Start Date:  March 19, 2018

Complete Date:  Mid-May dependent on weather
