Work to Begin on Happy Jack Exit May 26
There will be potential delays for motorists who are going to access trailheads or rest area facilities using the Happy Jack Road exit on Interstate 80 as road work begins Tuesday, May 26.
Contractors will be completing bridge rehabilitation work to the structure that connects motorists from I-80 to the Summit Rest Area and WYO 210 (Happy Jack Road) at exit 323.
Crews will also be milling and paving a high-performance wearing course on the Telephone Canyon portion of I-80, from mile markers 319-324. Not only does the wearing course improve durability and friction, but it also creates a smoother driving surface.
A width restriction will also be in place through the work zone.
Crews with the Wyoming Department of Transportation and Simon Contractors will be working on the project and the expected completion date is fall 2020.
