Truck Arrester System Moving Forward

 The Wyoming Department of Transportation will move forward with its scheduled construction of two truck arrestor systems, also known as catch-nets, for 2015.  The first arrestor system will be constructed at milepost 8, near one of the existing runaway truck ramps.  Motorists traveling down the pass will see this arrestor first.  A recent public meeting took place in Wilson to gather input on locations for the second arrestor system.  After reviewing public comment from that meeting, WYDOT officials are leaning towards locating the lower site at milepost 6.35 located on the straight/flat section adjacent to the Trail Creek Ranch, between Wilson and the Heidelberg for the second arrestor.  The system is to be one of 16 in the world and like the arresting gear on an aircraft carrier to stop planes, it uses a series of metal nets to stop out-of-control vehicles.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
