LARAMIE, Wyo. (KGWN) The Wyoming legislature has directed the University of Wyoming to explore the possibility of closing 15th Street to cars on campus as a safety measure for pedestrians. The section between Willett Drive and Ivinson Avenue is among the most heavily used roads on campus. Data dating back to 2009 indicated that about three to four thousand crossings occur in that area every day as students walk from the residence halls to Fraternity and Sorority Row.
The legislature has directed UW to have its report ready no later than November 1st.
