Wyoming Newspaper Urges Public to Support WYDOT’s I-80 Study

The Casper Star-Tribune editorial board comments on WYDOT’s $500,000, year-long I-80 study, which includes the topic of toll lanes, writing that, “Wyomingites should support this study [and its eventual findings]. . . . Safe and clear roads are a public priority . . . . But safety has a price tag. Whether the study leans in the direction of tolling, tapping revenue streams to widen the highway to three lanes through the state or some other tactic entirely, Wyomingites should remember that the costs will never be as painful as the preventable injuries and deaths that will continue if decisive action isn’t taken soon.”
