Phase II of W. 19 th Street Reconstruction Project is now 70 percent complete

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Phase II of the West 19th St. Reconstruction Project is now 70 percent complete, according to Nathan Beauheim, assistant city engineer. The section of West 19th St. between Snyder Ave. and Missile Dr. is now open to traffic. Work continues between Snyder Ave. and Pioneer Ave (picture above). While construction progresses, businesses within the construction area continue to be open to the public. Signs directing patrons to businesses along W. 19th Street are posted for best access. “We are happy with the progress being made on this project by the general contractor – Reiman Corp. – and the work they have done so far,” said Beauheim who serves as the W. 19th St. project construction manager for the City. “As construction continues, we want to make sure that everyone has access to those businesses along W. 19th St.” Phase II is between Pioneer Ave. and Crow Creek which will include total reconstruction of the roadway including new water and sanitary sewer lines; replacing curb, gutter, and sidewalk as needed; along with extensive stormwater and drainage work. The cost of the project is $5.4 million. Funding is from the One Percent Sales and Use Tax (5th Penny) and from the Board of Public Utilities, and is expected to be completed by the end of November 2016. Phase III construction of the project will be between Pioneer Ave and Warren Ave. and begin after Cheyenne Frontier Days at the end of July. *Feature photo: Crews continue work along 19th Street, May 18.
