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, MIlls, Evansville and Bar Nunn areas, and to provide a plan for the development of transportation facilities for the next thirty (30) years. The LRTP is being developed in coordination with the Casper Area MPO and participating city and town councils. The final LRTP will be presented to these agencies for review and adoption in October 2019.
In addition, a separate Citizen’s Guide of the plan, based on the goals and objectives of the plan, will be produced and made available to anyone interested in transportation planning. This easy to read and follow guide will help all of our citizens understand the purpose and findings of the updated LRTP.
The Casper Area MPO provides cooperative, comprehensive, and continuous transportation planning to the Casper area. The MPO is governed by a Policy Committee which include the agencies of 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 a Technical Committee of planners, engineers, or public works officials who discuss the technical aspects of transportation projects. The governing council of each member agency also sends individuals to a Citizens Committee. This group 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.
Project Priorities Revealed in Presentation to City Council
In addition to your feedback during our public events and through our transportation survey responses, the following criteria were used to evaluate each potential project that was discussed during the first three phases of planning. The projects were given a score and projects with higher scores were prioritized over those with lower scores.
The projects were divided up into low, medium, and high priority projects. Click on the photos to enlarge or click here for a complete list of projects and their scores. The presentation slides are also available under the Project Updates tab.
