A water main leak on 15th and Harney Streets will be repaired tomorrow, interrupting traffic, parking, and water services, the City of Laramie said today. 

A partial temporary street closure will be in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 3. 

“The turning lanes on both sides of the intersection will be closed when the project starts. The plan is to keep the intersection open for through traffic unless the conditions become unsafe for the repair crew, in which case the affected area will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic,” the news release said. 

Water services will be affected within a nine-block area around 15th and Harney Streets for the duration of the repair.
