CHEYENNE, Wyo. (RELEASE) - Work to repair the Parsley Boulevard bridge over Interstate 80 will begin Monday, Sept. 16, and will result in traffic restrictions and lane closures during the project.
Parsley Boulevard will be closed to northbound traffic beginning mid-next week (on or around Sept. 18) and will continue to be closed into the following week. A detour will be in place.
Southbound Parsley Boulevard traffic will be able to continue using the bridge.
On I-80, lane closures will be in effect in the westbound lanes for the duration of the project. Eastbound I-80 will be unaffected.
The bridge was struck by a commercial vehicle in the last year, necessitating the repairs.
All work is expected to be complete on or around Thursday, Sept. 26, weather permitting.
Reiman Corp. is the contractor for the project.
The ramp from eastbound Interstate 80 to northbound Interstate 25 will close for about two weeks beginning Tuesday, Sept. 17, for concrete repair work.
Traffic will be detoured onto West Lincolnway and then to northbound I-25.
I-80 access to southbound I-25 will not be affected, nor will work affect I-25 southbound to I-80 eastbound traffic.
The restriction is necessary to repair concrete slabs on the ramp and allow the repaired slabs time to cure.
Drivers should plan ahead for the closure and use alternate routes if necessary.
This work is part of a larger job to repair concrete slabs on various roads in the Cheyenne area.
The project is broken up into two segments, one to be completed this year and one next year.
This year’s work focuses on I-80 eastbound, including MM 357-362 (Roundtop Road to Central Avenue, including the I-80/I-25 interchange; the I-80 eastbound to I-25 northbound ramp; near MM 372; and MM 377-381.
All work on this year’s segment of the project should be complete by October, weather permitting.
Drivers should use caution in the work zones and prepare for lane closures during the project.
Slab repair work will continue next year on I-80 westbound, College Drive, and Central and Warren Avenues at 8th Avenue.
S & S Builders is the contractor for the project.
