Upcoming Trail Projects
Trails have proven to be a valuable resource for our community in the last few months. We have seen unparalleled trail usership and feel certain that the benefit of trails is more evident than ever. The PRTT is pleased to share that our work has continued through these uncertain times and we are poised to move forward with several trail projects this summer and fall.
The PRTT and our partner, the City of Casper, understands how important it is to maintain our trails, keeping them safe and accessible for all to use. To that end, reconstruction will occur on four older and needful sections of our community trail this summer including 1) From F Street to Mike Lansing Field, 2) From the Clarion Inn to the RR Trestle, 3) The trail in North Casper around Riverview Park with a connection to M Street and the River Trail at the Soccer Complex, and 4) The trail around PV Park.
In an ongoing effort to make the spine of our community’s trail system, the River Trail, accessible to people in their neighborhoods AND to allow trail users to access businesses and restaurants we are in the final planning stages of the trail connection from Morad Park to the Mountain View Shopping Center. We plan to put this project out to bid this summer with construction slated for this fall.
And finally, the PRTT with our partner the City of Casper will submit a WYDOT TAP grant for our project to extend the River Trail from Paradise Valley to Robertson Road via a bridge across the North Platte River. This project will realize a long-held goal of our organization to provide a non-motorized route from Bryan Stock Trail to Robertson Road allowing users to travel east to west through our community safely. This grant will bring much needed funds to our community and help us leverage the One Cent monies allocated to our organization.
These projects are important to our community’s non-motorized transportation system with the added benefit of employing local firms and companies. For more information or questions about our plans and how you can support the PRTT, feel free to contact us.
