Found this link that provides environmental studies and related information on the following recent/planned Wyoming highway projects:

http://www.dot.state.wy.us/home/engineering_technical_programs/environmental_services/Nepa.html

BL 25 and Bus 20-26-87 - improvements to Richards Street and 4th Street in Douglas. Much of Richards St was under construction in summer 2014 and 2015, and that roadwork is likely related to this environmental study.

BL 90 US 14-87 North Sheridan Interchange - reconstruct and relocate the North Sheridan Interchange, including appropriate improvements to I-90 and BL 90 and US 14-87 North Main Street. I did not see any construction evident in summer 2015.

US 14 south (west) of Burgess Junction - improve (widen, overlay pavement, and reconstruct portions of) 11-mile segment of US 14

US 14 Rupe Hill Landslide - realign US 14 due to landslide concerns near Rupe Hill between WYO 24 and Sundance

US 14 Alt - improvements to US 14A, between Cody and Powell (much of this route is currently three to five lanes and surprisingly busy)

US 26-85 Torrington Urban Project - Improve US 85, US 26 and US 26-85 in Torrington by reconstructing and widening US 26-85 and US 26; developing a continuous sidewalk system along US 26 and US 26-85, improving the existing storm drainage system on US 26 and US 26-85, and realigning US 85 with a grade separated crossing of the BNSF Railway tracks (the old alignment became Business US 85). Another thread indicated that the viaduct over the railroad tracks is already complete.

US 26-89-189-191 Hoback Junction - Improve 0.6-mile section of U.S. Highway 26/89, between milepost (MP) 141.4 and 140.7, including the U.S. 26/89, U.S. 189/191, and U.S. 26/89/189/191 intersection and the Snake River Bridge immediately southwest of the Hoback Junction community.

US 26-89-189-191 Jackson South - the expansion of this segment of highway would vary from south to north as described in the Record of Decision:


--- Quote ---The Selected Alternative combines features of the 3-Lane, 4-Lane, and 5-Lane alternatives that were developed and screened during the EIS process (see Section B). The Selected Alternative includes a three-lane rural cross-section portion that would tie into the three-lane urban section at MP 141.4 immediately north of Hoback Junction. Vehicles traveling north from Hoback Junction in this three-lane rural section would have a general purpose travel lane and a passing lane to improve traffic flow in this uphill section. The three-lane section would extend roughly 0.6 mile to MP 142.0, where it would transition to a four-lane undivided cross-section. This section then would extend 0.5 mile to MP 142.5 and include two northbound travel lanes, one southbound travel lane, and a center turn lane. Next, it would transition to a five-lane rural cross-section. The five-lane rural section would be the longest segment of the Selected Alternative and would continue for 6.1 miles to MP 148.6.

US 89 Etna North - expand roadway from Etna north to Alpine into five lanes (two lanes each direction with center turning lane)

US 287 (Laramie South) - convert 21 miles of highway from two to four lanes in Albany County from Laramie to the Colorado state line (substantial sections of this project are complete including between the state line and Tie Siding)

WYO 59 (Wright to Gillette) - improve 28 miles just south of the Town of Wright and WYO 450 to just north of Bishop Road, about 10 miles south of the City of Gillette, in Campbell County with additional lanes and safety features. Funding is needed to complete many of these improvements.

WYO 59 North Realignment - Alpha Coal West, Inc. submitted a proposal to relocate approximately 4.35 miles of WYO 59 (north of Gillette) to allow mining operations in the vicinity of Eagle Butte Mine to continue. Alpha is financially responsible for the cost associated with evaluating, designing, and constructing the relocated road. WYDOT is responsible for approving the location of the relocated road segment and overseeing design and construction. No federal or state of Wyoming (State) funds will be used to relocate the highway.

WYO 130-230 Harney Street Viaduct - relocate WYO 130-230 from Clark St Viaduct over Union Pacific Railroad in Laramie to a new Harney St Viaduct; demolish Clark St Viaduct

WYO 220 (Muddy Gap to Casper) - reconstruct 12 miles of state highway including Casper South and Narrows sections in Natrona County

WYO 257 (Casper West Belt) - construct new, 7.5-mile highway (WYO 257) between WYO 220 (three miles southwest of Robertson Road) and US 20/26 west of the City of Casper (at the intersection of US 20/26 Shoshoni Bypass and Business 20/26)

Lewis Street Bridge and Related Improvements - replace Lewis Street Bridge over the Little Goose Creek in Sheridan; improve Lewis Street pavement; close the south end of the Marion Street connection to Lewis Street; close the Alger Street connection to Lewis Street; create a parking lot from cut off section of Marion Street; construct bike path connecting to the existing bike path system. This project was under construction when I visited in 2014. As far as I know, this urban street is not a state highway.

I'm convinced this will never actually happen

I'm still trying to figure out where the $$$ is coming from. I haven't located that yet, either. No start date for construction AFAIK.

Well, one thing that's become apparent is that the WYO 59 relocation project is highly unlikely to happen, now that Alpha Coal West's parent company filed for Chapter 11 BK earlier this month. Unless they want to take their chances and see whether or not WYDOT wants to fund it by themselves.

--- Quote ---Contracts totaling $31.9 million for nine highway projects around the state were awarded by the Wyoming Transportation Commission during its October meeting in Cheyenne.

Lewis & Lewis Inc. of Rock Springs won the largest of the contracts with the low bid of $8.7 million for milling off deteriorating pavement and replacing it with a new layer of pavement on a 12-mile section of Interstate 80 about 12 miles west of Green River. The project also will include bridge deck rehabilitation work, and the contract completion date is Oct. 31, 2016.

Casper’s Oftedal Construction was the low bidder at $8.1 million for improvements to 3.3 miles of the southbound lanes of Interstate 25 between El Rancho Road and North Cottonwood Creek north of Wheatland. The project will include reconstruction in some areas, widening and new pavement in others, rehabilitation work on four bridges and drainage improvements. The work is expected to be completed by June 30, 2017.

McGarvin-Moberly Construction of Worland won a $6.3 million contract for work on 6 miles of the westbound lanes of I-80 at Walcott Junction. Previous pavement overlays will be removed, and the original concrete pavement will be cracked and seated to provide a base for 5 inches of new asphalt pavement. The contract completion date is Oct. 31, 2016.

Cheyenne’s Knife River was awarded a $5.3 million contract to mill off deteriorating pavement and replace it with a new layer of pavement on 10 miles of the eastbound lanes of I-80 about 10 miles west of Laramie. Three bridges on the highway section will get deck rehabilitation work as part of the project scheduled for completion by Oct. 31, 2016.

Five contracts were awarded for crack sealing to preserve the pavement on highway sections around the state. Highway Improvement Inc. of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, won the largest of the contracts with the low bid of $1.5 million for crack sealing on highways in Big Horn, Fremont, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie counties by May 31, 2016.

Highway Improvement also won crack sealing contracts of $570,000 for highways in Converse, Laramie and Platte counties by March 31, $509,000 for highways in Big Horn, Fremont and Park counties by May 31, and $466,000 for WYO 530 south of Green River by April 30.
