Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - According to the Board of Public Utilities, the 2014 construction season won't be as busy as last year, but there are several projects in the works for 2014 that will likely stretch into 2015.
One of those projects is Logan Avenue reconstruction. The entire street from Nationway to Pershing will be redone in pieces. There will be lane closures throughout the construction and Assistant City Engineer Nathan Beauheim said it will be a "tough time" for businesses and residents along those streets.
Another major project is Snyder Avenue reconstruction which is already underway. Mayor Rick Kaysen said the construction crews have to completely finish a portion of the street to continue with the next part of the construction.
Simon Contractors begins their final push on the roundabout this Monday. It's projected to be completed by early May. Beauheim said most of what's left is landscaping and sidewalk construction.
Beauheim said the City and the Board of Public Utilities work together to save time and money for Cheyenne, and that combining resources helps streamline the efforts and minimize the impact of projects.
Beauheim also said that contractors are not allowed to do any construction on major avenues and streets close to Frontier Park during CFD.
