Those who have driven South Highway 89 in the past few months have no doubt noticed that the Snake River Bridge near Horse Creek bears some new patches since last winter, but little else has changed.  That fix, says Wyoming Department of Transportation Engineer Bob Hammond, isobviously temporary.  He says the ride “is not horrible but it’s alright for the season” and he says it will remain that way through the winter.  Then next spring or early summer, he says WYDOT will execute a contract that will be let over the winter for the resurfacing of the bridge so that it will be able to serve the traveling public there until a scheduled replacement in about 2017.   In the meantime, Hammond says motorists will still have to drive 35 miles per hour while going across the bridge.
