2014 District 2 Snow Plan - Levels of Service

CASPER AREA

Highways designated for high-volume service will be plowed first, with roads in other classifications handled as soon as possible thereafter. Changing weather and road conditions may require shifting resources from lower-priority roads to achieve the desired level of service on higher-volume highways.

Up to 20 hours daily of high-volume service is provided on Interstate 25.
 
Up to 16 hours daily of medium-volume service is provided on U.S. 20/26 Casper-Waltman; WYO 220 Casper-Alcova; WYO 258 (Wyoming Boulevard) and U.S. 20/26/87 Casper-Glenrock.
