Curb, gutter & concrete replacement project nearing the half-way mark

(Riverton, Wyo.) – The city’s curb, gutter and sidewalk replacement project funded by the optional one percent sales tax is nearing the 50 percent completion mark, according to city officials. In a report this week to Riverton Public Works Director Kyle Butterfield, Utilities Division Manager Dawn Wilhelm reported that the project is about 45 percent complete. The $944,000-plus project is phase I of the effort to replace deteriorating concrete adjacent to the city’s most heavily traveled streets.

Already completed with one percent funds was the concrete replacement, and asphalt overlays in the Woodbridge Subdivision and on Watt Court.

The approved projects were recommended by the city’s For Our Roads Citizens Committee, or FORCC, and then submitted to the city council for their review and acceptance.

The optional tax for county and city infrastructure projects was approved by the voters two years ago.
