That plan is now in draft form and available for public review and comment. WYDOT Systems Planning Engineer Mark Wingate.
A public input meeting was held Tuesday night in Sheridan with several more planned across the state over the next few weeks. Wingate explains that even if you didn't have a chance to attend, you can still submit your comments and suggestions on the draft plan.
Wingate said that after all of the public input is gathered they will make revisions to the document prior to bringing the final plan to the Highway Commission in July for approval. Public comments on the draft plan need to be submitted by May 15th, 2010. To view the draft plan or submit comments, you can go to www.wyoconnects.com.
