Rock Springs — Grant Street Extension

Highway Construction

For this project, we extended Grant Street in downtown Rock Springs to connect with Western Wyoming College. Work consisted of pioneering a new road over a rock bluff, a bridge over Bitter Creek, a riprap-lined channel, drainage, crushed base, paving, storm drain, waterline, and lighting. A major challenge to this project was the pioneering of the sandstone rock bluff, and the riprap channel in Bitter Creek. Riprap for the gabion baskets was supplied from the Atlantic City Iron Ore Mine.
