Riverview Road construction continues; Hill Street work near; Operations closed for holiday

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Utility work near Mary Drive this coming week may close its intersection with Riverview Road and force residents to detour to Riverview via Henry Drive, according to Friday’s road construction update from the Wyoming Department of Transportation.
The gas line installation is expected to be complete next week on the $2.8 million highway improvement project in Riverton.
Crews were preparing Friday afternoon to shut down operations for the three-day Memorial Day weekend.
Crews with prime contractor Jerry Bornhoft Construction Co., are preparing to begin installing storm sewer on Hill Street about June 1. To accomplish this work, work crews may close Hill Street for up to two days. If this closure happens, Riverview traffic will be detoured to Riverview via Major Avenue.
Working hours of the prime contractor are 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Traffic is being allowed to pass through the project from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. without being stopped by flaggers. During the remainder of the work day, travelers may encounter delays of up to 15 minutes.
“Citizens are invited to attend a 1 p.m. work progress meeting every Thursday at the City of Riverton’s Public Works Building on Monroe Avenue,” said Robert Scheidemantel, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Riverton.
