[UPDATE] Laramie Curtis Street Bridge Detour Postponed to Tuesday
The Curtis Street Bridge detour has been postponed and will be closed Tuesday night, 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
The Curtis Street Bridge rebuild is on schedule, much to drivers' delight. Traffic for the on and off-ramps was detoured Friday night for the project and will be detoured again tonight from 9 p.m.- 6 a.m. on Tuesday.
The detour, according to the WYDOT press release, “is to secure the center girders for the Curtis Street Bridge rebuild and must detour the interstate traffic for the safety of the crews and the traveling public.”
Kory Cramer, WYDOT project manager for the Curtis Street Bridge, said progress is going well so far. “Reiman has been able to stay on schedule. We just passed the halfway point for the window to open the bridge and still feel confident that we will have traffic on the structure by September.”
WYDOT lists September as the completion date, though Cramer added clarification:
“The actual completion date for the project is Oct. 31, but by September, the detour route should no longer be in use.”
Motorists are encouraged to obey traffic control, slow down, follow at a distance, and avoid distractions like cell phones while moving through construction zones.
