CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper City Council is poised to review and potentially approve a series of infrastructure projects at its upcoming meeting on Nov. 21. These urban development projects in Casper include street repairs, utility upgrades and pathway improvements.
Shannon Drive and 8th Street Repairs
The council will consider a resolution for an agreement with Installation & Service Company Inc. This agreement, valued at $258,557.50, focuses on repairing Shannon Drive and 8th Street.
The project includes replacing 350 feet of watermain, storm manholes and asphalt overlays, with a total project cost — including contingency — of $282,557.50.
I-25 Marginal Phase 2 Utilities Project
Another key item on the agenda is the authorization of a cooperative agreement with the Wyoming Department of Transportation for the I-25 Marginal Project. This initiative aims to reconstruct Interstate 25, enhancing highway, street, sidewalk and drainage systems.
The project, with an estimated cost of $903,540, will also involve replacing aging city-owned water and sewer mains.
College Drive Improvement
The council is also expected to approve an agreement with JTL Group Inc., dba Knife River, for improvements on College Drive. This project, amounting to $790,253, will focus on asphalt surfacing, ADA-accessible ramps and sidewalk repairs along College Drive.
Including the construction contingency, the total cost is projected to be $870,253.
I-25 Marginal Phase 1 Enhancements Amendment
Lastly, the council will review an amendment for the I-25 Marginal Phase 1 Enhancements Project. This amendment seeks to adjust the scope and budget of the project, with the city’s financial obligation increasing to $52,546.
The revised plan includes pedestrian and street lighting, RGB lighting and wayfinding signage.
With City Hall under renovation, the council will meet at The Lyric, 230 W. Yellowstone Highway, at 6 p.m. with a pre-meeting at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be public and streamed on the City of Casper’s YouTube channel.
