by Wyoming Department of Transportation
April 5, 2010
The Wyoming Department of Transportation has released the draft Statewide Long Range Transportation Plan for public review and comment.
A series of public meetings has been scheduled to provide an interactive overview of WYDOT plans to address transportation needs over the next several decades. WYDOT representatives will be available to answer questions. All comments will be considered prior to the plans completion in July and will be collected at these open house events and on a dedicated website.
The schedule for the meetings is:
Sheridan Tue., April 20 5:30 7:30 pm Best Western Sheridan Center
612 N. Main St.
Casper Wed., April 21 5:30 7:30 pm Casper City Hall, Atrium

WYDOT will present an overview of two documents at the meetings which are part of an overall initiative called Wyoming Connects. The Corridor Visions identify uses, conditions, and needs along a system of State Significant Corridors that connect major activity or population centers throughout the state. The Long Range Transportation Plan summarizes conditions and needs at the statewide system level.
Wyoming Connects addresses all modes of transportation and gives an overview of current operating characteristics and future needs. It presents three future scenarios that describe how the transportation system will perform in coming years given different levels of investment.
The documents will be available for review at the public meetings, or they can be accessed online at www.wyoconnects.com. Other information about Wyoming Connects is also available on the website, including a survey and electronic comment forms.
