Bids for Buffalo's Cemetery Road Pathway project will be opened Friday afternoon at City Hall.
The project, according to Buffalo City Planner Zach Montgomery, is for a pathway roughly 8 to 10 feet wide that runs from South Burritt Avenue to Old Highway 87, near the high school. It will provide a very safe access between the schools, he said.
The project is being funded through a Federal Highway Administration grant through the Wyoming Department of Transportation's TEAL (Transportation Enhancement Activities-Local) Grant program.
According to Montgomery, this project will not be affected by the proposed SW Quadrant upgrade.
The SW Quadrant upgrade is a joint project between the City of Buffalo, Johnson County and JC School District 1 to bring infrastructure up to standards in and around the current and future schools in that section of Buffalo. No decision on funding for that project from the state has been made at this time.
The bids for the pathway project will be opened at 1:30 Friday afternoon, and will be handled by Grizzly Engineering, the administrator for the project.
