Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Stoplight Count ...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Live in Laramie Real Estate, Laramie, Wyoming WY #12296

You've heard of a one stoplight town....well, Laramie is a 42 stoplight town.Stoplight

No, I didn't drive around and count them all!  I've just lived here long enough that I simply marked them on a map then counted them.  I could have missed one, maybe two, but I'm pretty sure I got them all

(Yes, I know, if this is what I do in my spare time, I might need to get out more!)

Forty two may not sound like much but I think in Wyoming that only about 4 towns - Casper, Cheyenne, Gillette and Rock Springs - would have more. 

Since I don't know the other towns well enough to figure it out with a map and there's no way I'm driving all over Wyoming to see, I guess we'll just have to try to not die from the suspense of it all!

Do you know your town well enough to know how many stoplights you have?  I'd love to know how many if you do....

42! That's just crazy talk. Jackson has 7, and the old timers are still complaining about the last one that went in some 8 years ago. Plus we have two others in the county... I grew up in Houston, which has roughly 453,927 traffic lights. Or something like that.

Brenda, Near my mom's in Wyoming are four towns with no traffic lights.  In the Las Vegas Valley there are approximately 1200 traffic lights. And I don't miss any of them.

Brenda, Six in my town on the main drag, with 2 others on the road perpendicular to the main road in the center of town.  They run all day and night long.  I like it when small towns put their traffic lights to sleep for the night and have them in flash mode until the early morning commute.

Horses..... now, that would be a challenge!

Hi Mary!  I've been through your community on the way to a lake and it's true, I can't remember a single stoplight!

Hi Tim - I knew that Jackson's count would be low AND that you would know it!

Hi Gloria - Now I know that not every town east of the Mississippi is a metropolis like I often imagine!  Sounds like a nice, little place!

Will - It's true, for whatever reason, our town and state had a pretty steady increase in population....
