Wyoming Department of Transportation — Snowy Range Road Bridge

The bridge on Snowy Range Road in Laramie, WY had been around since the 1960’s. In order to create a better operating and safer structure for travelers, The Wyoming Department of Transportation need a solution that addressed the needs of both travelers and the railroad. Through years of design and community outreach, the $23.5 million project included a new four-lane bridge carrying Wyoming Highway 130/230 over the Union Pacific Railroad, 1.3 miles of new, five-lane road connecting the interstate and expanding the existing bridge crossing the Laramie River, as well as a new multi-use path that connects to Laramie’s Greenbelt trail system. The bridge and road alignment provide a much safer path for vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles to cross the Union Pacific Railroad and helps to tie in the community – creating more connections and more efficient operations for goods and services to get where they need to be.
