RIVERTON, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - Asphalt paving on the south side of Riverton’s Main Street is scheduled to resume beginning Monday, Aug. 30.

71 Construction of Riverton is the prime contractor on a $1.443 million concrete rehabilitation project on Main Street in downtown Riverton.

During paving operations, traffic movements will continue to be single-lane traffic movements on the north half of Main Street between Federal and North 1st Street.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience. We’re in the home stretch of this work,” said Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Robert Scheidemantel of Riverton. “We apologize for the inconvenience, but side-street intersections will remain closed on the south side of Main Street until we open the street to unrestricted traffic movements.”

All work is dependent upon favorable weather.

The contractor’s work schedule calls for the paving on Monday and Tuesday (1-inch layer) and Thursday and Friday (2-inch layer).

The concrete rehabilitation project is 0.50 miles in length between North Federal Boulevard and North 1st Street. The project includes concrete milling, asphalt paving, and curb, gutter and Americans with Disabilities Act ramp repairs.

Project completion date is Oct. 31, 2021.
