If you are planning to attend University of Wyoming Spring Commencement activities this weekend, be prepared to  face some traffic disruptions due to a major road construction project east of campus.

The Wyoming  Department of Transportation has closed the intersection of 30th street and Grand Avenue to rebuild it. There are detours around the intersection along the main artery that runs from I-80's east Laramie exit to the City and the University of Wyoming campus.

UW officials are encouraging commencement visitors to allow for more time to reach campus destinations, and to consider alternative exits from I-80.  In  addition, UW Transit and Parking Services is planning additional shuttle bus service to transport visitors to the various commencement ceremonies.
