The Wyoming Department of Transportation will be closing two street in Laramie beginning next week.

WYDOT will close Cedar Street between Clark and Curtis – where the new Harney Street Bridge will intersect with Cedar Street- will close Monday, May 7 as part of the Harney Street Bridge project. Local traffic will be allowed to access businesses and residences on either side of the closure.

The closure will be in effect for about a month and will allow crews to construct the new intersection of Harney and Cedar streets, including installing traffic lights. WYDOT says the $23.5 million Harney Street Bridge project remains on schedule with a tentative completion opening date this summer.

The 15th Street Bridge over Interstate 80 will close for about a month to allow for regular maintenance on the bridge surface. That closure will begin Tuesday, May 8 and will continue through June 5.

No traffic will be able to cross the bridge and a detour will be in effect. The work follows last year’s damage repair that happened after a tractor trailer hit the bridge.
