Wyoming Department of Transportation

Public Meeting takes place in June

December 1, 2017

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) hosted a public meeting at the Etna Community Center, 107736 US Highway 89, on June 25, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The purpose of the public meeting was to provide a project update and share with local residents and landowners the changes that have been implemented in the US 89 Etna North project.

An initial scoping meeting on the Etna North Project took place in Alpine back in 2008, and then recently an open house in March of this year. WYDOT continues to work towards its goal of improving transportation in the Star Valley corridor. The meeting in Alpine served to inform the public of the proposed improvements and gather input from the local community.

After reviewing comments from the public, WYDOT made several revisions to the project to better address those public concerns.

"This public meeting will offer those residents a chance to see what revisions have been made and how it will better serve their needs," District 3 Public Relations Specialist Stephanie Harsha said.

This meeting  included information on the project history, purpose and need and developing alternatives. WYDOT officials were, and continue to be on-hand to answer any specific questions or concerns the public may have.
