WYDOT: Removing rocks from state-owned pits is illegal

Posted

The Wyoming Department of Transportation is reminding the public that it’s illegal to remove gravel, rocks and other items from state-owned or state-leased gravel pits.

Large rocks used for rip-rap were recently taken from the Red Pole Pit, west of Cody, and there is an ongoing investigation. 

State-owned and state-leased gravel pits are clearly labeled at their entrances with signs, said WYDOT maintenance foreman Jim Berry of Cody.

“Please respect state property,” Berry said. “Thanks to everyone for their understanding.”
