ROCK SPRINGS — The Wyoming Department of Transportation and contract crews from IHC SCOTT Inc., will be setting girders on the bridge at the Baxter Interchange June 28 through July 2.

Due to the work, the Baxter crossroad will be closed intermittently between 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to give crews the space and safety they need to do the work. Commuters using this interchange are reminded to expect delays and plan accordingly. 

During that time, the westbound off-ramp will also be closed while crews conduct concrete paving on the project. Traffic traveling westbound to the airport or Middle Baxter Road will have to detour on exit 122 or travel to Rock Springs and circle back.

The project encompasses work on roughly 13 miles of Interstate 80 beginning at milepost 107 on the east side of Rock Springs. Work will include grading, milling existing asphalt, concrete paving and bridge replacement and rehabilitation.

WYDOT would like to remind drivers to slow down in work zones, be alert and cautious of roadside workers and obey all traffic control devices.  For more information on road construction, closures and weather conditions, please visit http://www.wyoroad.info.
