[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.
