Lander Active Transportation Improvements
In addition to the trail development projects Wyoming Pathways had been helping with in the Lander area, we are proud to announce that we are now helping with projects to improve Active Transportation in Lander. We have recently retained Michael Kusiek as our new Lander Active Transportation Director to manage our work with various partners to improve Active Transportation infrastructure in Lander.
Work is scheduled to begin Monday, March 22nd, at the Main Street/Buena Vista intersection on the $6.89 million Lander concrete rehabilitation project and US-287 pavement overlay.
The $6.89 million US-287 (Lander Main Street Americans with Disabilities Act improvements and concrete rehabilitation, and US-287 pavement overlay) project is 16.2 miles in length, between the Main Street/Buena Vista intersection in Lander and Ft. Washakie.
The project includes concrete grinding, concrete joint sealing, asphalt paving, chip sealing, and curb, gutter, and ADA ramp repairs.
The contractor’s preliminary work schedule shows work mostly complete by the middle of July.
Weekly public work progress meetings are scheduled to begin at 9 am Thursday, March 25, at the southwest corner of the Main Street/2nd Street intersection in downtown Lander. Citizens and businesses are invited to attend the weekly work progress meetings.
“By contract, project work is required to be phased so that 2-way traffic is maintained on half of the roadway at all times,” Smith said. “There will be some intersection disruptions and lane closures during this quick-moving project. A large percentage of the project includes pavement work (milling and a pavement overlay) between mileposts 10 (near US-287’s intersection with WY-132) and 24.17 (Ft. Washakie).”
