City Officials cut the ribbon on the newly newly completed Christensen Road and Railroad Overpass on Wednesday, November 18th. The project provides improved access to surrounding privately owned properties and businesses which accommodate over 4,700 employees.
As the east side of Cheyenne continues to expand, so does the demand for connectivity. During the ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday morning, Councilman Rocky Case shared conversations regarding the overpass began 20 years ago when he and Councilman Pete Laybourn discussed potential for growing industry on the east side of Cheyenne. The project gained traction in 2015, when the Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization identified the need for an additional crossing over the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) tracks.
“It’s amazing that 20 years later, here we are,” Case said. “It’s a great gateway to connect the east side of Cheyenne. So congratulations to everybody that finally got this pulled off to support good progress as Cheyenne continues to grow.”
