The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) has announced a grand opening for the new Harney Street.

The project, which is ahead of schedule, was scheduled to be completed in mid-October.

The official opening will take place on Monday, July 16 at 10 a.m. on top of the bridge. During the event, residents and visitors will be able to walk to the ceremony at the top of the bridge and enjoy refreshments. After the ceremony, the bridge will be cleared and the bridge will be opened to regular traffic.

Of the Harney Street Project, WYDOT District 1 Public Relations Specialist Matt Murphy said that "we've been getting a lot of positive feedback from the community on the aesthetics of the bridge as construction is wrapping up."
