CASPER, Wyo. (MEDIA RELEASE) - The draft version of the Antelope Drive & Salt Creek Highway Access Study and Plan for the Town of Bar Nunn is available for review and comment.

The Casper Area MPO, in accordance with its Public Participation Plan, releases all draft studies and plans for public comment and review before completing any project. We invite the public to submit comments, suggestions or questions by March 12, 2021.

Feedback on the report can be provided to the MPO via phone at 307-235-8255 or email at jyates@casperwy.gov. Interested citizens are also welcome to offer comments and suggestions via Facebook.

MPO Supervisor, Jeremy Yates, commented on the project saying, “We’ve received a ton of great feedback on the project at our two earlier open house presentations. We have really worked with our consultants and the Town of Bar Nunn to get a great finished product. We hope to hear many public comments on the final draft report.”

The goals of this study are to determine the effects of the new Westwind interchange on traffic in Bar Nunn, predict what will happen if parts of Antelope Drive are closed, provide alternatives for new and/or improved access to Bar Nunn from Salt Creek Highway, and suggest transportation improvements on Salt Creek Highway and within the Town of Bar Nunn that may be needed to accommodate these changes. The draft report is posted on the Town and MPO websites.
