Channel 11 Announcements, updated on the first business day of the week
WYDOT, US Highway 287

Construction crews on the US 287 divided highway project near the Colorado border begin blasting operations . Travelers in both directions are advised to expect occasional delays of up to 30 minutes. 
There are three ways to avoid these delays:

1. Until the project is complete towards the end of summer, avoid traveling that stretch of roadway at 10 am or 3 pm.
2. Blasting will not occur every day, but when it does, itoccurs at 10 am or 3 pm.  3. Blasting will not occur on Sundays

Blasting days and times will be posted on the WYDOT Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/WYOMING-DEPT-OF-TRANSPORTATION/288387851340

Please check the WYDOT Facebook page to plan a trip that avoids delays due to blasting.

Thank you very much for your patience.

*The Overpass project is scheduled to begin construction in 2016. Please address questions on the new viaduct to WYDOT resident engineer, Steve Cook, at
