Road construction season gets underway inside Rawlins city limits today. WYDOT crews will begin a big makeover the I-80/US 30 Business/Wy 78 stretch of roadway.

Work includes placing crushed base, and replacing concrete slabs with new pavement.

WYDOT advises that heavy equipment and loud equipment is required to get the job done. So expect to be annoyed if that kind of work bothers you.

The first phase will affect traffic on Third Street and Spruce streets inside city limits. The middle two lanes of Third Street will be blocked off during the work. An 18-foot restriction will be in place on for I-80 thru-traffic. Motorists should expect delays and plan accordingly.
