Man dies in accident near Basin
BASIN – Fatigue is believed to be the contributing factor to a driving
fatality late Sunday night in Big Horn County.
Thomas A. Miller, 56, of Wapiti was southbound one mile south of Basin when his vehicle went off the roadway on the right side. Once Miller’s 2001 Dodge 2500 pickup left the roadway, it rolled a half time, coming to rest on its roof. Miller, who was not wearing his seat belt, was partially ejected from the cab of the pickup during the rollover.
The accident occurred at milepost 192.5 at 11:29. Trooper Dan Smith was the investigating officer.
Miller was the lone occupant of the vehicle.

Project will slow Lovell traffic
LOVELL – Street projects on the east and west ends of Lovell began on
Monday, April 21, according to Ben Steed, Wyoming Department of
Transportation resident engineer in Basin. More than $4.9 M in highway
improvements for work on U.S. 310/Wyoming 789 was made possible by
revenue from the 10-cent fuel tax increase, passed by the Wyoming
Legislature in 2013.
The removal of concrete median between Hampshire and Idaho avenues and between Oregon and Pennsylvania avenues were the first areas to see work begin.
The two inside lanes will be closed to allow the work to be done, Steed said.
“These sections of median are being removed so traffic control can be set up to do the work,” he said.
WYDOT and the Town of Lovell request that residents avoid parking on Lovell’s main street between the locations to aid the contractor in completing its work, Steed said.
The Lovell Streets project’s goal is to replace 60-plus-year-old water and sewer lines, fix the deteriorating driving surface of Lovell’s main street and gain American’s with Disabilities Act compliance with sidewalks.
Reiman Corp. of Cheyenne was awarded the contract in March by the Wyoming Transportation Commission. Contract completion date is Oct. 31, 2014.
The Lovell Streets project is a combined project with WYDOT and the Town of Lovell. It includes removal and replacement of concrete pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalks, asphalt pavement, installation of new water lines, sewer lines and one irrigation pipe along main street.
Weekly public working meetings will begin next following this Wednesday’s preconstruction scheduling meeting between WYDOT, the Town of Lovell, Reiman Corp. and its subcontractors.
“WYDOT and the Town of Lovell will actively take public input during this project, including working with businesses to maintain access to businesses daily and at the weekly public working meetings,” Steed said. “We understand this project will bring disruption to the normal atmosphere of Lovell and we appreciate everyone’s patience during this important project.”
The project is located between mileposts 236.25 and 237.43 on U.S. 310/Wyoming 789 in Lovell.
