State Funds Nearly All Lewis Bridge Project

Posted in

The first of two open houses hosted by the Wyoming Department of Transportation regarding the Lewis Street Bridge project in Sheridan was well attended, as a little over 30 people showed up to learn more about the project. The total construction cost of the project is estimated at $4 million. WYDOT Public Involvement Specialist Ronda Holwell talks about how it will be funded.

The Bridge Replacement Off System is a federally funded bridge replacement program to reduce the number of deficient off system bridges. Holwell indicated that they will host a more detailed public meeting next spring.

The project will include a complete replacement of the Lewis Street Bridge and re-alignment of some of the roads that are in the area of the bridge.
