Four Lane Highway Plan Cruises Through the Senate

Cheyenne, Wy – After making some changes to how projects will be funded, the Wyoming Senate gave overwhelming support to a bill that could help build more multi-lane highways in the state. Gillette Senator Michael Von Flatern amended the proposal to give the Department of Transportation ten million dollars for planning. The idea is to have them move more quickly on improving some two lane roads.
Senator Bob Peck supports the bill saying that it tells the department that the State Senate agrees with the concept of four lane roads. He remains hopeful that a four lane highway could be planned across the middle of the state. The measure now heads to the house.
