Need: Approximately 17 miles of the Bridger Pass Road needs to be reshaped and resurfaced. The road is located in Carbon County, near Rawlins, Wyo. The road is used frequently by hunters, ranchers and local residents. The contractor will reshape and resurface the roadway with gravel.
Recovery Act Funding: Border States Paving, Inc. was awarded the contract for $1,505,835.00. The work began on Sept. 18, 2009 and will be completed in November.
Benefits: Re-graveling the road will enhance public safety by creating a more durable and stable road surface. Currently, the road has become full of ruts and mud holes. Sometimes the traveling public will opt to drive in the ditches to avoid the obstacles. Which results in more resource disturbance.
