Fremont County Road 10 safety improvements completed
Fremont County Road 10 (aka Gas Hills Haul Road) has been rebuilt to county standards, gravel surfacing was applied and a portion of old road was replaced with a new 1.7-mile segment. This road improvement should provide safer public travel and reduce the number of travelers stranded miles from the nearest source of help, according to Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.
The project began in June 2019 and improved 7.6 total miles of road. The road connects Natrona County’s Dry Creek Road (Road 212) through to Wyoming Highway 136 and Fremont County Road 5.

The DEQ’s Abandoned Mine Land Division funded $3 million of the work because the road was part of an abandoned mine operation. The Wyoming Business Council funded $1.5 million, Cameco Resources paid for the design of the road, Umetco contributed funding to the project and the Fremont County Commission paid for remaining costs.
