2018 Street/BOPU Projects Are Announced

A2016-lincoln-shield-centaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The City’s Engineering Department announced its street work schedule for 2018 at a press conference at the intersection of Kennedy Drive and Morningside Drive in the Sun Valley Addition today.

Mayor Marian Orr, who campaigned for better roads in 2016 and took office in early 2017, said she is pleased with the progress the City is making with street improvements but more needs to be done. “When I ran for office people told me they wanted their roads fixed. We need to do it right the first time. We are on the right path.”

Engineering Department Construction Manager Sam Berta said the City plans to chip seal more than 25 miles of streets this year.

During the summer of 2017, the City conducted its first chip seal program in more than 20 years and found the program to be worthwhile. “Motorists will notice that there is more surface work on City streets this summer than in past years,” said Berta. “This is all because the chip seal process is less expensive which allows more street work to be done and helps prolong the life of a street.”

Part of that 25 miles of chip seal includes Nationway from Logan Avenue to Ridge Road which will get a double-chip seal.

Besides the chip seal work, other work includes:

  • The construction of a one-lane roundabout at the intersection of Prairie Avenue and Frontier Mall Drive. The construction is expected to start after Cheyenne Frontier Days and be completed in November.
  • Christensen Road overpass is expected to start construction late this fall. This project was approved by Laramie County voters in 2017. The project will be in full swing in the spring of 2019.
  • Mill and overlay of Mountain Road between Dell Range Boulevard and Council Bluff
  • Mill and overlay of 20th Street between Evans Avenue and Carey Avenue.
  • Construction of the Commons Project is scheduled to start in July.

Chip seal work is scheduled in each of the City’s three wards.
