For many, it may have seemed like this day would never come, but the contract to repair the so-called “five way interchange” on Broadway called for construction to be completed by June 30th. In actuality, Wyoming Department of Transportation Engineer Bob Hammond says all lanes will be reopened by early this afternoon. Hammond says some of the driveways leading to businesses from Broadway and sidewalks are still being paved, and trees and landscaping are being put in; but that won’t affect traffic flow on the street. Meanwhile, the traffic signals at the intersection have begun flashing and will begin cycling later today. Hammond notes with particular appreciation the patience of those businesses that were impacted for the duration of the construction. Hammond says the construction has definitely impacted the businesses along the corridor and throughout town. However he says, “the businesses most impacted were definitely the ones along the corridor and they’ve been wonderful to work with.” Altogether, the project cost about $5-million to complete and was funded by federal highway funds augmented by $1-million from the town’s special purpose excise tax for sidewalks and streetscape features.
