RIVERTON, Wyo. — The Wyoming Transportation Commission has awarded contracts worth nearly $20.3 million for 13 projects across the state. One will be patch work on highways in Fremont County. Lovell’s Mountain Construction will be doing the work, receiving $2.6 million for work on highways here, and in the counties of Big Horn, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie.

The award to Mountain Construction is one of the top three making up more than half the total amount to be spent.

The largest contract of $6.3 million went to H-K Contractors of Idaho Falls, Idaho, to build parking areas for motorists to install or remove tire chains on Interstate 80 east of Evanston. A parking area at the Fort Bridger Interchange will accommodate 100 trucks when needed during highway closures.

The other was Custom Lighting Services of Sandy, Utah. That contractor will get $2.4 million to install electronic equipment on I-80 and state Highway 28 to broadcast road, weather and traffic information.
