Casper Area Long Range Transportation Plan
The leading objective of this effort is to update the 2014 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) for the Casper Urbanized area and to provide a plan for the development of transportation facilities for the next thirty (30) Years, to the year 2048. The LRTP is being developed in coordination with the MPO and the governing bodies of the above member jurisdictions. The final LRTP will be presented to the governing bodies of the MPO jurisdictions for review and adoption. In addition, a separate Citizen’s Guide of the plan, based on the goals and objectives of the plan, that is easily understood by agencies and members of the public that may not be familiar with transportation planning will be produced.
The Casper Area MPO provides cooperative, comprehensive, and continuous transportation planning to the Casper urbanized area The MPO is governed by the Policy Committee. Currently, MPO member agencies include Bar Nunn, Casper, Evansville, Mills, Natrona County, and WYDOT. The Casper/Natrona County International Airport and the Casper Area Transportation Coalition are also non-voting members. Policy Committee members receive professional guidance through the Technical Committee. Each jurisdiction sends planners, engineers, or public works officials to discuss the technical aspects of projects. The governing council of each agency sends individuals to the Citizens Committee. This group of individuals consists of individuals interested in transportation and who offer a resident’s perspective on MPO projects. They also act as community ambassadors for the various projects.
