Closures scheduled for I-80 interchange

Hanna Draw Road improvements approved
The Carbon County Commissioners last week approved the purchase of gravel to lay on the Hanna Draw Road. County Road 270, which was also considered for this project, will have to wait until spring to receive fresh rock. Emma Diercks has the story.
Editor’s note: After this story first aired, Interim Road and Bridge Superintendent Kandis Fritz clarified that the CMAQ grant that the county applied for to gravel CR 291 and 270 is for $400,000—not the $2 million dollar figure stated in the story. The county’s match is $80,000. We apologize for the error.
Commissioners moving forward with Medicine Bow shop
Commissioners are also moving forward with plans for a proposed county road and bridge shop in Medicine Bow. After rejecting all bids last month for the original blueprint, the board reviewed a new, less costly design during last week’s regular meeting. Cali O’Hare has the story.
