The City of Laramie, in collaboration with WYDOT, the US Federal Highway Association, and Reiman Corporation, has begun work on the Spring Creek Trail project. This trail aims to enhance pedestrian safety and provide non-motorized vehicle access to the residents of Laramie, Wyoming, and its numerous visitors. Presently, a concrete path stretches from 30th Street to Walmart. Phase 1 of the project - marked in red below - is slated for completion by Summer 2024 and will extend the trail from 30th Street to LaPrele Park, creating a connection with the 30th Street-Walmart trail.
Phase 1 of the project will not only connect the 30th Street-Walmart trail to LaPrele Park but will also create a parking lot, offering 13 standard parking spaces and 1 designated for handicapped accessibility. Additionally, it features two upgraded crosswalks – one at the intersection of 24th Street and Spring Creek Drive, and the other at the crossing of 30th Street. These crosswalks will incorporate pedestrian-activated flashing-light beacons, ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps, and vivid thermoplastic crosswalk markings for improved safety and accessibility.
Listed above are the two halves of the Spring Creek trail, expressed as a dotted-orange line running along Spring Creek Drive, that will eventually connect to the 30th St-Walmart trail. Included in this plan is the eventual connection of Spring Creek Trail Phase 1 to the Poledna Addition of the Spring Creek trail, which spans from 3rd Street to 5th Street.
Long-term, the Spring Creek Trail aims to provide safe pedestrian travel for all Laramie residents on either side of Spring Creek.
