Travelers on Crazy Woman Road should anticipate up to 30-minute delays beginning Monday as crews repair the road.
According to a press release from the U.S. Forest Service, the Bighorn National Forest road crew will begin to repair a section of the road that was eroded during spring runoff. The damage created a narrow spot in the road, which is at risk of further erosion if nothing is done. The road will not be closed during construction, but drivers should anticipate delays.
Efforts will be focused along mile post 4.4 and will consist of, among other work, installing stacked gabion baskets on an approximately 80-foot-long section of road. Gabion baskets are heavy-gauge wire baskets that are filled with rock and commonly used in retaining walls. The gabion baskets will be used as a solid foundation for the road crew to rebuild the road to its original width while protecting it from future damage.
Work is not planned to occur during the weekend. There will be road construction signs on site to warn drivers.
