Wyoming Department of Transportation – North Garner Lake Road

To accommodate heavy truck traffic Gillette, the Wyoming Department of Transportation constructed a new 8.2-mile route that provides a second north-south access from I-90 to WYO 59. This new $34 million access route eliminates truck traffic through the city of Gillette. This project proved especially important as the Contura Coal West Company expanded its mining site crossing the Little Powder River Road, eliminating an eastern access route for heavy truck traffic through Gillette and the residents of northern Campbell County.
