[ARCHIVED] 45th Street & E Crow Drive Road Closure and Pilot Hill Trail Access Information

The original item was published from May 7, 2021 3:55 PM to March 28, 2023 3:22 PM

Q.  At the corner of Crow Dr and 45th St a series of NO PARKING OR BE TOWED signs have been placed inside tire rims and placed on the city street. They do not look official and I am wondering why. I like to walk the path from that corner. Are these signs legitimate?



A.  On April 29, 2021, the City of Laramie Published a Press Release--45th Street & E Crow Drive Road Closure and Pilot Hill Trail Access Information

Laramie, WY – Beginning May 5th and running through June 9th, the City of Laramie will begin the process of re-drilling municipal well 41T3, which will require the closing of motor vehicle access to the corner of 45th Street and E Crow Drive—see map inserted below.


During this time, access to the Pilot Hill trail system will not be accessible through the construction area. Alternatively, Pilot Hill Project staff encourage trail users to access the system from the east end of Willett Drive. Pilot Hill visitors can also utilize the Recreation Center parking lot and cross Grand Avenue at the Grand Avenue and South Boulder Drive stoplight intersection.

[ARCHIVED] Greenhill Cemetery - Willet Gate

The original item was published from October 4, 2022 11:52 AM to October 4, 2022 11:52 AM

Q.  What's the policy on procedure with respect to the gate at the cemetery? I walked my dog in the morning and 99 times out of 100 when I get there the gate on Willett Drive is open but every now and again after walking all the way through the cemetery I find it locked. Is there a schedule? Particularly addressing Monday mornings.


A.  The E Willett Dr. gate to Greenhill Cemetery is closed whenever there is a home UW football game and remains closed until staff are onsite to reopen it, generally the following Sunday or Monday. This practice was put in place as staff began seeing an increase in the cemetery parking space being used by game attendees. This gate has also been closed when we’ve experienced a significant snow event to help deter people from driving into the cemetery until staff have had a chance to open up all of the roads.

[ARCHIVED] West Laramie Road Dust Control

The original item was published from September 7, 2022 3:37 PM to September 8, 2022 3:58 PM

Q.  When is it anticipated that the dirt streets in West Laramie will be oiled again? Is there a regular schedule for more frequent oilings, or can one be set up in an effort to reduce dust from vehicles and wind storms? As well, it would be nice to have an oiling soon after a grating of streets is completed. Currently, there is tons of dust coming up and lingering after a single vehicle. Today several city dump trucks are passing through the neighborhood and the dust is phenomenal!


A.  The City of Laramie Streets Division will be applying more magnesium chloride dust control solution once they’ve finished laying down the material they are working on this week and next week. They are also watering their hauling route to help keep the dust down.
