Meeting on road work Tuesday

A public meeting to discuss 2016-2017 highway improvements to North Federal Boulevard is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Riverton City Hall.

The city and WyDOT want this to be the best possible project for Riverton, and we need citizen involvement to accomplish this. Please plan to attend."

The North Federal Boulevard highway improvement project will extend from Washington Avenue to north of Webbwood Road.

A formal presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by questions and an open house. Public comments will be accepted, and refreshments will be served.
