Council Approves First Street Reconstruction Contract

Townsquare Media

The city of Casper will proceed with plans to rebuild a section of First Street near Casper’s downtown core.

During its regular session on Tuesday night, Casper City Council approved the nearly $2 million contract with Casper-based Grizzly Excavating and Construction by an 8-to-1 margin. Ward I councilman Daniel Sandoval was the lone dissenting vote.

The project itself calls for water line, curb and gutter, and mill and overlay work.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer said the project is also roughly $800,000 cheaper than preliminary estimates.

“Fortunately, the Grizzly people stepped up, and we extended the time frame a bit,” Meyer said. “(The work on that street) is very badly needed.”

Meyer said motorists can expect the rehabilitation work to extend from the East Yellowstone Highway and East First Street intersection to an area near Conwell Park.

The project should be completed by November, Meyer said.
