Gap in Wyoming US 87
« on: May 15, 2017, 03:33:47 AM »

When did US 87 between Sheridan and Buffalo washout, and are there any plans to repair/rebuild/officially reroute the highway? Either my Google-fu's week or I'm just not finding any information about it aside from throwaway comments on Wikipedia.

I know we discussed it awhile ago in this thread; some of your questions are addressed in there.

What about the missing section of US 87 in New Mexico?

I don't believe US 87 has a gap in NM... unless you're referring to the fact that it's not signed along I-25 between Raton and the Colorado line. 

The situation addressed in this thread is different: there is a section of US 87 in WY that has been impassable for years.

This doesn't strike me as an area that is in dire need of another N-S highway. It does seem kinda silly that Wyoming hasn't addressed the deficiencies in WY 193 that would allow them to move US 87 to that alignment, or just moved US 87 to the I-90 alignment.

Quote from the other thread linked earlier:

Actually, in 2001, WyDOT did make a petition to AASHTO to move US-87 onto WY-193 and it was rejected because of deficiencies on WY-193 that WyDOT has chosen not to address.  AASHTO made a couple of suggestions:  To move US-87 onto I-90 up to the next available crossover point or to move US-87 onto I-90 through the entire area.  AFAICT, WyDOT never answered back.

Since that was in 2001, I wonder if they've fixed said deficiencies. I drove 193 a couple years back and it was really nice; nicer than some US routes I've been on in fact.
