WYDOT finds funds for local safety project

Congrats to Pete Laybourn and the members of the 180/Greeley Highway Enhancement Coalition for securing funds to address safety issues at one of the busiest intersections in Cheyenne. Southside residents on foot, bikes and wheelchairs have to negotiate this crazy intersection to get to the only grocery store in the area. In this Channel 5 news clip, Pete takes time out to thank Gov. Mead for pushing to increase funds for highways and other infrastructure needs in the face of a Republican-dominated Legislature intent on cutting such funds by up to 8 percent even when the state has a billion-dollar surplus.
