What You Need to Know
Attention, Wyoming drivers! There will be essential construction activity on the Snake River Bridge on WYO 22 that might impact your plans. Here’s what you should know:
- Date & Time: Work begins on the evening of Wednesday, Aug. 21, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
- Traffic Impact: The Wyoming Department of Transportation will reduce traffic to a single alternating lane on the bridge. Traffic will be controlled by flaggers, and drivers can expect reduced speeds through the work zone.
- Why at Night? To minimize disruption to local traffic, the work will be carried out at night. So, factor in potential delays.
- What’s Happening?: The bridge railing is being removed to lay the foundation for a new bridge. A concrete barrier will replace it for public safety until the old bridge is dismantled next summer.
- Bigger Picture: This work is part of the Snake River Bridge and Intersection project, which includes replacing the Snake River Bridge on WYO 22, reconstructing the intersection of WYO 22 and WYO 390, and adding wildlife crossings. The project is on roughly 1.80 miles of WYO 22 & WYO 390. Aimed for completion by June 30, 2025.
