Laramie River Greenbelt Closure

High-Water-I-678x381

 Laramie River Greenbelt Closure

 

Laramie, Wyoming: The City of Laramie, Parks Division is notifying the public of potential hazards which could be encountered at this time along the Laramie River Greenbelt Trail. Rapid snowmelt has raised the level of the Laramie River onto the Greenbelt path at the Snowy Range Road bridge underpass. Crews have placed barricades to warn users of the high-water level. Signs have been placed at all entrances to this section of the Greenbelt trail between Curtis street and Garfield street to pre-warn users of the closure. This closure is expected to remain in place through the spring and early summer season.  Crews will monitor the river level and make adjustments as necessary.

Crossing Snowy Range Road to avoid this trail section is dangerous and should not be attempted due to high vehicle speeds, steep grades and construction in the area. Greenbelt users are reminded that the Wyoming Territorial Prison Park property requires an annual fee for access and trespassing to avoid high water areas is not permitted.

For further information please contact Scott Hunter, Parks Crew Supervisor at 721-5257 or shunter@cityoflaramie.org or Keith Wardlaw, Mosquito Control Supervisor at 721-5258 or kwardlaw@cityoflaramie.org.
