Holmes: Laramie County Roads A Big Challenge

Doug Randall/Townsquare Media

Laramie County Commissioner Keith “Buck” Holmes says the wet spring weather means keeping up county roads is an even bigger challenge than usual this year.

He says one big concern is five miles of county road between La grange and Albin which was destroyed by heavy truck traffic when U.S. Highway 85 was shut down for a spring storm. Holmes says that mean large trucks were forced to travel the county road, which it wasn’t designed for. Holmes says repaving such roads would cost somewhere between  $1.1 and $1.2 million per mile using traditional repaving methods.

But he says county officials are looking at some alternative re-paving methods in hopes of reducing that cost. Holmes says in general county road crews are running well behind schedule, adding they are doing everything they can to catch up
