Bitter Weather Slows Bridge Construction

Bridge Drawing

It probably comes as no surprise that the brutal weather earlier this month took its toll on construction projects involving outdoor work.  Such was the case on the new bridge across the Snake River at Hoback Junction.  Wyoming Department of Transportation officials say as a result, the new target date for opening that bridge to traffic will be mid-January.  Once that happens, work can begin on the demolition of the old bridge soon after the new one opens.  WYDOT Spokesperson Stephanie Harsha says furthermore, the contract proposal for construction of the retaining wall on the west side of the bridge is ready to be put out to bid during the next bidding cycle.  That retaining wall is to be constructed next season as a separate contract from the bridge work.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
