The reconfiguration of Main Street was a topic of discussion at the Sheridan City Council Strategic Planning session earlier this week. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
In anticipation of the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s resurfacing project of Main Street in downtown Sheridan that is tentatively scheduled for 2023, the City of Sheridan orchestrated a three-lane reconfiguration test of Main Street in downtown last summer. Of nearly 1,000 online responses to a survey on the three-lane configuration, 65 percent of the responses were positive. In the fall, the City converted the portion of Main back to its original form prior to the test. The question remains of whether or not to implement the three-lane configuration before the WYDOT resurfacing project.
City Public Works Director Lane Thompson told the Council at Monday night’s Strategic Planning session that the early estimate is around $355,000 if they want to change to three lanes permanently before the WYDOT project.
