Sheridan County commissioners at some time need to consider vacating a 40-foot road right-of-way on the north end of Sheridan.

That's according to County Engineer Ken Muller, who recommended the action at the commissioners' staff meeting Monday.

Commissioners took no action at Monday's meeting, but Muller said there will probably be a notice of intent to vacate the roadway on an upcoming commission agenda. Muller said the Suburban Gardens Subdivision was platted in 1918.

He said when Interstate 90 came through the area, which was some time in the late 1950s or early 1960s, a portion of the area was used for the interchange.

Muller said the state of Wyoming has given a piece of the old on-and-off ramp to the city of Sheridan for some of the city pathway. He said the rest of the subdivision is privately owned except for a portion of the subdivision that was bought by the state at the time the interstate was constructed.

Muller has recommended that the county commissioners do a board-initiated vacation. If the right-of-way is vacated, the land will be apportioned among adjacent property owners.
