Powderhouse Road Corridor Study

Summary of Project

Located in north-central Cheyenne, Wyoming, Powderhouse Road serves as a major north-south corridor between the commercial areas of Dell Range Boulevard and the residential areas of northern Cheyenne and Laramie County. It stretches 7.2 miles and passes through a wide range of land uses and jurisdictions. 

Inconsistencies in the type and quality of road, sidewalk, and drainage infrastructure have made it a top priority for planning of future phased construction as the Cheyenne area grows over the next few decades. 

In the summer of 2022, the Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) selected AVI, PC and Stantec to develop 35% conceptual design plans for the Powderhouse Road Corridor. A 35% conceptual design allows government agencies such as the City of Cheyenne, Laramie County, and WYDOT better prepare for the future as our community grows. It will help create budgets and timelines for future infrastructure work along the corridor and help identify potential challenges early on.
