City of Laramie Parks Division is notifying the public of the closure of a section of the Laramie River Greenbelt trail due to potential hazards which could be encountered. High water levels and ice formation has raised the level of the Laramie River onto the Greenbelt path at the Snowy Range bridge underpass. The moving water and ice has created unsafe conditions under the bridge.  Crews have placed barricades to warn users of the water level.  River levels will be monitored and the closure will be lifted when crews can make the area safe for travel.

Crossing Snowy Range Road to avoid this trail section is dangerous and should not be attempted due to steep grades and construction in the area. Greenbelt users are reminded that the Wyoming Territorial Prison Park property requires an annual fee for access and trespassing to avoid high water areas is not permitted.

For further information please contact Scott Hunter, Parks Crew Supervisor at 721-5257 or shunter@cityoflaramie.org or Keith Wardlaw, Mosquito Control Supervisor at 721-5258 or kwardlaw@cityoflaramie.org.
