Improvements to Nowater and Two Mile Hill Roads Begin


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announced today that improvements have begun on the Nowater Road, six miles south of Worland, and on the Two Mile Hill Road, one mile south of Hwy. 16 between Worland and Ten Sleep. Work is expected to be completed in late-November.

While the roads will remain open during the improvements, travelers may experience short delays of up to 15-minutes. The roads will be graded, a 4" gravel surface will be applied and rolled, and finally the roads will be shaped and compacted. Synergy Construction, LLC from Lovell will be doing the work.

“Please use caution as you travel through these work areas as you will be sharing the roads with large haul trucks,” said BLM Supervisory Civil Engineer Monica Goepferd.

For updates on the road repairs, please contact the Worland Field Office at 307-347-5100.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
