Poplar Street section closure to begin July 25

Date: 07/18/2012 

CASPER - Contrary to recent reports in the media, a section of Poplar Street north of First Street will not close on Monday, July 23.

The actual closure date is Wednesday, July 25. This closure will be in effect from First Street north to Bighorn Road (just north of the railroad bridge). The closure is expected to last up to 10 business days. Access to all businesses, and Bighorn Road, will remain open during the closure.

The 10-day closure is necessary to allow construction crews to repave the narrowest section of Poplar Street (the area from the bridge to Bighorn Road) without traffic interference. The remaining resurfacing will take place on two lanes of the roadway at a time allowing for one lane in either direction.
Drivers may access businesses on Poplar Street south of Interstate 25 from F Street or I-25. Beginning today, motorists in the area will notice closure information posted on variable message signs near the construction zone.
