The City of Sheridan will move forward in applying for a state grant to help fund a utilities project in the area where the new North Main Interchange will be located. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
Following approval of a resolution by the City Council, the City will apply for a grant through the Wyoming Water Development Commission to help fund the installation of a new water transmission line for the North End Utility Project. City Utilities Manager Dan Roberts said the line will loop from Decker Highway north of the interstate, north to the new school site platted by School District #2, and then west, crossing under the interstate, to connect into the transmission main in Yellowtail Drive.
The total estimated cost of the project is $2.5 million. The City is applying for a grant in the amount of $1.6 million and will be responsible for a 33 percent match, meaning their share of the project will be roughly $828,000. Roberts said the grant application will be considered by the WWDC in November and will go before the State Legislature for approval in February or March of next year. He said that if approved, the project would begin next summer and would be completed in the spring of 2019.
