Why does road repair work occur toward the end of summer?


"Laramie has a small Street Maintenance Division and must schedule certain maintenance work strategically. Therefore, work is held off until later in the summer when a list of needed repairs has been compiled and the work can be completed all at once. Oftentimes, city crews compete against the private sector for available resources (e.g. asphalt mix) and must wait for those materials to become available; after large paving projects are completed by contractors. Also, due to a limited number of local asphalt suppliers, our streets crew are frequently waiting on the availability of asphalt, which is in high demand during construction season."

Ask the City Of Laramie is your chance to send the city that burning question that you have always wondered about such as: “Where can I get a city parking permit?” or “Why did my water usage rates go through the roof?”

Please note that the City of Laramie will answer as many questions as possible at their discretion.
