Grand Avenue work to begin May 28

May 23, 2019

LARAMIE, Wyo. – Grand Avenue in central Laramie will be repaved this summer, with lane closures in effect while work takes place.

Construction will be from 3rd Street to 15th Street. In addition to new pavement, curbs and gutters will be repaired, sidewalk intersections will be made ADA-compliant, and traffic signals will be replaced at 4th, 9th, 13th, and 15th streets.

Some trees along Grand will also be removed, and WYDOT has already been in touch with affected property owners.

Crews with Simon Contractors will begin work on Tuesday, May 28 (weather permitting), starting with the signal at 4th and Grand and curb work on the south side of Grand Avenue. From there, signals will be replaced at intersections one at a time from west to east, and workers will move to the north side curbs after completing the south side.

In late July, paving will begin and will continue though late August.

The entire project should be complete by the end of August.

Drivers should be prepared for lane closures during the course of the project, as well as delays or closures at intersections while signals are being replaced.
