Release from WYDOT:
A 50-foot section of fresh concrete was damaged Monday evening when a vehicle drove on it on the North Federal Boulevard highway improvement project, and the 50-foot by 18-foot section concrete will be removed early next week.
The section of damaged concrete is just south of Sunset Drive’s intersection with North Federal Boulevard between Walgreens and Pit Stop, according to Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Robert Scheidemantel of Riverton.
“It’s about 25 cubic yards of concrete that’ll be repoured as soon as possible, a very expensive repair,” Scheidemantel said. “The damage caused by the driver will delay reopening of the Sunset intersection. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

“Please remember the no left-turn policy during this project, and the 20 mph speed limit. Both measures are being actively enforced by law enforcement within the work zone,” Scheidemantel said.
