TORRINGTON – While some Goshen County residents will be hanging Christmas lights and decorations, construction crews with the Torrington Streets Project will be hanging new power lines.

Western Area Power Administration contractor Intermountain Electric, based in Rock Springs, will be stringing the new wire on equally new poles installed during the week of Thanksgiving, according to Wyoming Department of Transportation Resident Engineer Buck Klemola.

Summers Construction is continuing work on water and sewer infrastructure. Crews are installing a water line on the south side of the project at the City of Torrington Water Treatment Plant, and Industrial Park Road has been closed to through traffic. Summers will also be working with the city on the north side of the project, tying into the municipal storm sewer system. Work on the water line north of U.S. Highway 26 east of Maverik is slated to be complete this week; the work will not affect the water supply to local businesses.

Caylor and Genz Earth Movers of Torrington are backfilling around the bridge foundation footer south of Highway 26. The company will continue dirt work on the south side of the railroad as well as the north side of the highway intermittently.

Reiman Corp. continues its work on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad bridge overpass, starting work on the top of the columns on Highway 26’s north side. Miller Wall Company is building precast walls to retain earthwork on the project’s north side.

For safety reasons, Reiman officials continue to ask the public to stay clear of the 1700 block of East E and F streets up to Highway 26.

East E and F streets are closed between East 17th Avenue and Highway 26; the 1600 block of East F Street is also closed. Industrial Park Road is closed to through traffic, and eastbound traffic on Highway 26 has been diverted into the left turning lane.
