Map courtesy City Of Laramie

The City of Laramie along with Simon Contractors has begun the construction of the Regency Drive Detention Pond. Construction will include the expansion of the existing pond located just west of the Recreation Center and will help mitigate flooding potential downstream as recommended in the South Laramie Storm Drainage Master Plan (Available on the City of Laramie Website). This proposed pond is one of many planned improvements in the area that are designed to improve storm drainage.

Simon Contractors is excavating material from the new pond and hauling it to a stockpile site West of the Laramie High School. The excavated material will be used to help construct Bill Nye Avenue between Boulder Drive and 19th Street. In addition to drainage improvements this project will provide for the installation of shared use paths between Regency Drive and the Laramie High School and on Boulder Drive between Garfield Street and Beech Street. The anticipated completion date for this project is October 31st, 2019.
