CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Even though it seems late in the season to be doing construction in Downtown Central, the impact can still be felt.

“A lot of times, as slabs are completed, the traffic control will move around a little bit. But with it being concrete it does need time to cure. So sometimes there are cones where, there might not be necessarily active work,because that concrete is curing,” said Jordan Achs, Public Relations Specialist for WYDOT.

Central Avenue is receiving new concrete slabs in the downtown areas, resulting in several lane closures.

Wydot asks people not to block the intersection, try to get into the lanes, and block cross traffic.

Central Avenue street parking will open up as segments get completed.

Signal light poles between Warren and 8th are delayed. Wydot asks for patience in those areas.

The project is scheduled to be finished by the end of November for the winter.

“We do appreciate everyones patience, if you can take an alternative route we encourage it, just to help allieve some of that. If your business access is being blocked you can contact the local wydot office here in cheyenne. Resident engineers office can look at that and see if we can move some things around,” said Achs.

The following project will be on Lincolnway between pioneer and capitol.

But don’t worry, it isn’t scheduled until the spring.

If you have any concerns about any areas having business or traffic access, you can call 307-777-4376 to contact your Wyoming Department of Transportation Resident Engineer and Purchasing Offices.
