Sheridan Avenue Meeting Addresses Concerns

Written by on March 29, 2019

A small crowd gathered at the Cody Auditorium yesterday to learn more about the major repairs planned for Sheridan Avenue next year.

Representatives from the Wyoming Department of Transportation, the City of Cody, and affected businesses met for an open house yesterday evening to view plans and ask and answer questions about the project, which will begin in the spring of 2020.

It was a light crowd that came out for the meeting, but Guy Grant, a WYDOT engineer, says that they have already been talking with the business owners on Sheridan Avenue and have begun to address their concerns.

Cody Mayor Matt Hall says that WYDOT has been sensitive to the needs of local business owners.

And business owners appreciate that communication. Bert Miller, General Manager for Denny Menholt, says their primary concerns are getting their patrons in and out of their lot.

The project is set to begin next March, with a pause in construction during the busiest tourist time, from the middle of June to the middle of August. Work will continue through the fall of 2020.
