Oct 17, 2012 - StaffContractors, politicians, Wyoming Department of Transportation employees and members of the public commemorated the completion of the seven-year, 38-mile reconstruction of the Togwotee highway Tuesday with ceremonies near Brooks Lake. Right, the Dubois School Band moved inside the new WyDOT Brooks Lake maintenance building along with its audience because of area rain storms. Below, Dubois residents Corky Emmons, left, and Duane Redman looked at aerial maps of the $146 million road which reaches an elevation of 9,658 feet as it crosses over the Continental Divide. This was the first major reconstruction of the road since 1921. Photos by Wayne Nicholls
