Casper Area MPO Studying Rail Trail Extension

Posted on 07/09/2021

The Casper Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), in coordination with HDR Engineering, is hosting two public participation opportunities for the Casper Rail-Trail Extension Plan.  This study will examine possible alignments from Hat Six Road to Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park, and will identify a route that provides the safest crossing across US 20/26 (Old Glenrock Highway) into the park.  The team will also conduct safety, cost, and traffic analyses while collecting feedback from residents, stakeholders, and trail users to identify the best route for the extension.

The MPO is currently seeking public input to help develop the extension plan through a digital survey and at a pop-up event. Details are noted below.

Digital Survey:

The survey can be accessed at surveymonkey.com/r/CasperRail-Trail until July 19, 2021.

Pop-Up Event:

  • When: Saturday, July 17, 2021 from 10 a.m. – 1p.m.
  • Where: Edness K. Wilkins Park,Platte River Shelter (map attached)

“We want to continue to provide trail users safe and easy connections to the many parks and other amenities our area has to offer,” said Renee Hardy, MPO Technician. “We want to make sure this plan includes the needs of both our residents and visitors.”
