State gets money for 2011 road damage

Apr 17, 2012

     Wyoming will receive more than 20 million dollars in federal money to pay for damage caused to state roads by landslides and flooding last year. 

   Due to extreme wet weather and flooding, Wyoming sustained damage to roads at 60 sites in 13 counties including the dry sandstone slide on Wyo 70 near Baggs, a slide on highway 26-89 in the Snake River Canyon and a washout on Wyoming 130 east of Saratoga that led to the deaths of four people who were drowned by flood waters.
