The Hardin-South project is a roadway reconstruction project focused on the improvement of State Secondary Highway 313 (S 313) by addressing wear and tear from seasonal loads and improving safety for all users. Additionally, the structure over Williams Coulee will be replaced and the structure over Two Leggins Canal will be maintained with new approaches and safety rails.
The project is located in Big Horn County and is the number one reconstruction priority for the County. Approximately 5.6 miles long, the project area extends south from Hardin towards the Bighorn River.
Large seasonal loads on trucks and the amount of traffic in on the roadway have caused damage to alignments, leading to a roller coaster feel in some areas and bumpier rides over damaged road. KLE will provide better angles on curves, wider roadways, and well-maintained surfaces – all things that keep travelers safe on the road. Reconstruction projects like this one extend the usable life of a road all while making it safer through better design.
