Wyoming Alleys

Alleys are driveable roads that often provide access to the rear of a business or residence.

Mapping alleys in Wyoming is permitted with the following guidelines:

  1. Alleys should always be mapped if; they have an official name, or they are the sole access to a home or business.
  2. Alleys often are mapped if; if they are acknowledged by the municipality.
  3. Alleys may optionally be mapped if they don't meet any of the above criteria.

When mapping alleys, use the following rules:

  • Public alleys are to be mapped as a  Parking Lot Road  and named Alley when unnamed.
  • Private or gated alleys are to be mapped as a  Private Road  with no name unless otherwise named.
  • When adding an alley segment, House Numbers should be bumped to ensure the entrance is closest to the primary access point. Keep in mind some residences or business may have dual access. In such cases, default to the main road.[a]

Considerations:

  • Consider destination routing for alleys which will be closer to the destination pins for house numbers, or from Google, as this can cause all navigation to all the addresses on that block to route onto the alley instead. It may be better not to map these alleys.

^a Google address pins may need adjusting as well.
