LARAMIE, Wyo. — Grand Avenue in Laramie has reopened in time for fall classes to start at the University of Wyoming.

The street that borders the UW campus has been closed since early March for reconstruction.

The $4.5 million project included widening Grand Avenue and installing median islands and pedestrian crossings to help make the street safer.

Engineer Steve Cook of the Wyoming Department of Transportation said the project was finished ahead of schedule.

Students begin moving back on campus on Aug. 29.
