Drivers in Cody will be seeing surveyors out this spring in preparation for a future roadway rehabilitation project.
WYDOT is upgrading the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements at the street corners on each city block. WYDOT Photos and Surveys workers from Cheyenne will be on site as early as this week, and possibly through early April, to survey existing street corners and gather preliminary data so plans can be developed for the project.
WYDOT Resident Engineer Todd Frost of Cody says the rehabilitation will consist of concrete slab replacement, grinding concrete, resealing concrete joints, and Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades on the concrete portion of the highway from 10th Street to Stampede Avenue.
The project is tentatively scheduled for the year 2020.
Since the roadway was originally reconstructed in 1985, Frost says there has been minimal maintenance, so the highway has been experiencing deterioration of some of the concrete slabs and loss of existing crack sealant.
