A rock slide that occurred on Saturday night in the Wind River Canyon shut down US20/WY789 for nearly 4 hours so now, as a way to prevent similar situation from occurring, an $8.78 million project is set to resume earlier than expected.
Amid reports that some downtown Casper business owners are frustrated with the construction that has currently closed down part of 2nd street, from David street to Durbin street, the City of Casper has responded to some of the criticism and has tried to put business owners a little bit more at ease.
"I'm the first one to say that the City of Casper has been such an exciting place to start your business in," one business owner said. "I felt welcomed. I felt cared about. But this, in particular, has been extremely detrimental to us, just in the last two days. I can only imagine what a month of this is going to be like."
