LARAMIE, Wyo. (Release) - The City of Laramie has scheduled the reconstruction of the 30th & Reynolds intersection. The project includes the replacement of the intersection surfacing, updating the sidewalk ADA ramps, spot repairs to curb and gutter, and intersection striping.

This intersection is located near residential areas and an elementary school and has steadily seen an increase in traffic. The asphalt has been degrading at an accelerated rate due to the traffic increase. Over the past few years. The Streets Department has patched and repaired different sections of this intersection through their annual maintenance program. The intersection has reached a point where it needs to be replaced as maintenance cost and time have steadily and dramatically increased.

To meet the current and future traffic loads at this location it is planned to replace the asphalt with reinforced concrete. This intersection handles heavy loads from school busses, construction equipment accessing the asphalt plant to the east and is a designated route for oversized loads and detours coming off I80. A new reinforced concrete intersection will hold up much longer than asphalt. This project will also upgrade ADA access and improve crosswalks which will improve safety for school age children accessing the adjacent elementary school.

If you have addition questions or comments, please contact the Project Manager, Mark Hazelett at 307- 721-5250 or engineering@cityoflaramie.org.
