JACKSON, Wyo. — The Rancher Street Complete Streets Project is currently underway in East Jackson.

According to Town of Jackson Public Works Senior Engineer Scott Mohror, the project began Tuesday and asphalt removal began yesterday. The plan is to work one block at a time until completion, excluding asphalt. The contractor estimates that it will take five weeks per block to install storm sewers, sanitary sewers, water distribution pipes and appurtenances associated with the utilities along with curbs and gutters before moving to the next block.

Working hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The empty lot the Senior Center owns will be their staging area for equipment and materials.

The project will replace approximately 1,500 feet of water main and 500 feet of sewer main. The entire corridor will be resurfaced along with new storm inlets and about 2,000 linear feet of new sidewalk and furnishing zones.

Sidewalks will line both sides of Rancher Street from Pearl to Hansen Ave. Between Broadway and Pearl Ave, a sidewalk will be built on one side of the road, replacing on-street parking.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.
