CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The trail system in Casper continues to expand.

A new extension along the Platte River Trail will allow travelers to safely cross CY Avenue into the Mountain Plaza Shopping Center and connect neighborhoods on the west side of Wyoming Boulevard.

The extension was made possible by funds from the Wyoming Department of Transportation, the Platte River Trails Trust and Optional One Cent #16 Funds.

Platte River Trails Trust Executive Director Angela Emery said it’s been on their radar to connect trails closer to people’s homes.

“It makes it safer for youth to access our trails as well as people that want to commute to work on a bicycle or by foot,” said Emery.

There will be a ribbon-cutting in the pullout across from Walmart along CY Avenue to unveil the new stretch and thank everyone that made the extension possible at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
