Curtis Street Bridge Over I80 To Be Repaved

Eastbound traffic will not be able to cross the bridge during construction.

WYDOT crews will be repaving the Curtis Street Bridge over Interstate 80 next week, and drivers should be prepared for detours and delays.

Work is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 5, and is expected to take one day. The work is weather-dependent, and unfavorable weather conditions could push the project to the next day.

During construction, eastbound traffic (toward downtown Laramie) will not be permitted to cross the bridge. Instead, drivers will be detoured along Pierce Street, Snowy Range Road, and McCue Street.

Westbound traffic will be allowed to cross, but vehicles will be subject to traffic control.

This arrangement was chosen in order to avoid backups on the west side of the bridge.

Drivers should be prepared for the lane closures and exercise caution in the work zone.
