WYDOT pushes expensive interchange project

Cheyenne, Wy – The Wyoming Department of Transportation
wants to rebuild and improve the I-80/I-25 interchange in Cheyenne.
Transportation department officials say improvements are necessary to address safety concerns and to accommodate increasing traffic.
The department released a project study on Wednesday that states
the project would cost an estimated $220 million. Officials say costs will rise the longer work is delayed and say the project
would be the most expensive single roadway project in Wyoming history.
The transportation department plans to hold public meetings to explain the project. The first is scheduled to be held Sept. 18 at the Hitching Post in Cheyenne.
