Overpass construction moving along

Posted: Updated:

Despite minor weather delays due to an unusually rainy late-summer, construction of Torrington's new overpass is moving along quickly.

It will be a while until the overpass is operational, but the bridge it's self is nearing completion.

The construction of a new railroad overpass on the east side of town is part of the Wyoming Department of Transportation's U. S. Highway 85 realignment project.

Construction crews are nearing the end of their concrete work, and will then focus on replacing a major sidewalk and improving the landscape.
"But that sidewalk will replace the existing one that was already there and it was torn up in the early stages of construction.," says Mayor Mike Varney.  "Well they were moving back and fourth with equipment and supplies so it had to do, and it did."
Varney says the new overpass should be open for vehicles this coming spring.
