The Wyoming Department of Transportation will be starting a number of road construction projects in Laramie next week and are reminding residents to factor them into their commute time.

On Monday, June 25, WYDOT maintenance crews will be paving 3rd street from Curtis Street to Beaufort Street. Once that is complete, workers will be paving the Curtis Street Bridge over I-80. Only one lane of travel will be open at a time and flaggers will allow traffic from each direction to take turns through the work zone.

Also on Monday, crews with Simon Contractors will begin work to mill a section of WYO 130 within Laramie city limits. Crews will be working from the WYO 130/230 junction in West Laramie moving west from that point.

Access to WYO 130 from Jefferson Street and Wyoming Avenue will be prohibited while work takes place. Paving on the section will begin later. A pilot car is guiding traffic through other sections of the project. Drivers should expect delays and Laramie Regional Airport passengers will be affected and should be aware of this when traveling to the airport.

On Wednesday, traffic on Snowy Range Road will be detoured onto Garfield and Cedar streets so that crews can add the final layer of pavement to the new section of Snowy Range Road. The detour will last up to 10 days. Westbound traffic toward downtown Laramie will have the same detour in the opposite direction.

The work is part of the $23.5 million Snowy Range Road Bridge project. The project remains on schedule with a tentative completion and opening date in July.
