A pair of pavement improvement/repair projects are under way on US 26/287 between Dubois and Moran Junction. More than 2 miles of Togwotee Pass will receive 2-inch asphalt pavement patches between the U.S. Forest Service boundary, west of Dubois, and Moran Junction in a $755,600 repair project.
About 5 miles of US 26/287 will receive asphalt pavement surfacing, chip sealing, fencing and other work in a $2.6-million project beginning about 10 miles west of Dubois and continuing to the U.S. Forest Service boundary. The contractor’s schedule calls for asphalt milling on both projects to have begun on June 2nd, and asphalt patching work over Togwotee Pass is scheduled this week and next week, weather permitting.
Paving on the Mabel’s Hill section, east of the Forest Service boundary is scheduled between June 21st and July 2nd, with approach paving scheduled July 6th through the 8th. Chip sealing will take place from August 25th through Aug. 31st.
