TEN SLEEP -- Fully-engaged bridge and highway improvements are on schedule on the $11.14 million project in Ten Sleep and west of the Washakie County town on U.S. 16.

Prime contractor for the Ten Sleep West project is Oftedal Construction, Inc.
“We’re pleased with the progress the contractor is making in the urban section of the project inside Ten Sleep,” said Dan McAfee, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Worland. “It’s impressive what the contractor has accomplished this month in Ten Sleep and west of town on U.S. 16.”

Work is also continuing on the Nowood River bridge.
“Citizens are beginning to see the huge scale of highway and bridge improvements on this project. We’re pleased with the cooperation of Ten Sleep residents and businesses. We appreciate everyone’s patience,” McAfee said. “This project will serve eastern Washakie County very well for many decades to come.”
The Ten Sleep West project consists of grading, draining, milling asphalt, removal and replacement of sidewalk, curb and gutter in the Town of Ten Sleep, placing crushed gravel base and gravel pit run subbase, asphalt paving, a bridge replacement, electrical systems, guardrail, fencing and other work on 3.1 miles of U.S. 16 beginning at milepost 23.74 between Worland and Ten Sleep.

Basin man dies in Friday crash

Alcohol use is being investigated as the contributing factor in a fatal crash early Friday morning. The single vehicle crash occurred at 2:40 a.m. on US Highway 310 at mile post 232 approximately four miles south of Lovell.
According to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, 39-year-old Louis L. Muckley of Basin, was driving a 1996 Dodge Ram truck southbound on US 310 before the truck left the road to the west in a slight left hand curve in the highway. After reentering the highway, the truck began to spin across all lanes of US 310 to the east. After leaving the highway for a second time, the truck tripped and rolled multiple times. 
Muckley was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected during the crash and sustained fatal injuries on scene.
