The Question:

Why is Grand Avenue so dark and there weren't any lights on the new islands?

The Answer:

“Within the urban areas, WYDOT only puts lights at traffic signal locations. Other than those it is up to the cities. WYDOT may yet add an edge line stripe at the medians to aid visibility. That is being evaluated.

The University of Wyoming will be adding some lights on their side of the road. That's in the works, mainly targeted for pedestrian safety, but that will help for lighting the area after sundown.

Thank you for bringing this issue to the City’s attention. The issue will be forward to appropriate departments for review.”
