Construction Equipment--Hours of Operation

Posted on June 11, 2019 at 8:51 AM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  How do I find out the hours of operation for heavy equipment on a project taking place next to my house? Also, how do I have the hours of operation of heavy equipment changed to better fit the neighborhood. The hours indicated on the ordinance from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. are not appropriate for a residential neighborhood.

A.  City of Laramie Municipal Code allows for construction equipment to operate between the hours of 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM. The City Engineer can authorize longer hours if a special need on a project occurs--this is handled on a case-by-case basis. If a contractor is operating outside of these working hours, you may contact the Police Department at 721-2526 to file a complaint and an officer will investigate, or you may call Engineering at 721-5250 to ask any questions about projects in the right-of-way. All changes to Laramie, WY Municipal Code must be approved by the Laramie City Council.
