With spring comes road work


Construction has begun on HWY 230, north of Encampment. The project will be similar to what Platte Valley residents saw north of Saratoga on 130 last summer, as a mill and overlay project.

The construction is contracted by McGarvin-Moberly Construction out of Worland, and according to president Phil Caines, the group will start with a contractor this week to grind the top two inches off the road. The shoulder work drivers have seen will use a rotor mill to create a safety slope.

Weather permitting, the workers should conclude by June 1 and then apply a chip seal. Until then, drivers can expect delays up to 20 minutes during the milling and paving stages, which should each last about 2 weeks. While the paving and sealing depends on temperature, the milling work can be done even if the temperature drops, Caines said.
