Construction sign Grant Street Rock Springs

Starting today, The Wyoming Department of Transportation will close all access to Grant Street for about three days.

ROCK SPRINGS — The Wyoming Department of Transportation will close all access to Grant Street starting on Monday, for about three days, so crews can install a manhole on North Center Street.

Due to the nature of the work and to keep motorists and work crews safe, WyDOT will reduce traffic to two lanes, one in each direction. Because of the reduction in lanes and traffic congestion, WyDOT and crews must close access to Grant Street while the work is being completed, according to a press release.

“There will be so much congestion that no one would be able to turn off Grant Street onto Center Street safely, so we had to close it completely,” WyDOT Resident Engineer Peter Stinchcomb said.

The completion date for the project is Oct. 31. The project was awarded to Casper Electric Inc. in January. All work schedules are subject to change. WyDOT reminds drivers to slow down in work zones and be alert and cautious of roadside workers.
