Fox Farm Corridor Planning Process Moving Forward

Cheyenne City Hall (Doug Randall/tsm)

Officials with the Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization say the process of developing a transportation plan for the Fox Farm corridor between Walterscheid and College Drive in Cheyenne is moving ahead.

Nancy Olson of the MPO says the plan attempts to plan ahead to meet development pressures and the needs of residents for the next 20-25 years. Olson says a series of meeting to get public input on the plan have been held, with the most recent meeting occurring on May 28th. Olson says much of the public feedback has consisted of calls for better lighting, and more sidewalks and pedestrian walkways.

Olson says another common public concern is the increasing amount of heavy truck traffic in the corridor and what can be done to accommodate it while still serving the other transportation needs served by Fox Farm Road. Olson says the corridor plan will also try to address how to make intersections along the corridor safe as well as the future expansion of Fox Farm Road east of college drive. She says proper drainage is yet another issue that needs to be addressed.

Olson says planners are currently working on finalizing a draft plan to present to city and county planning commissions, adding  she is hoping that presentation can be made in the next month or so. After that both the Cheyenne City Council and Laramie County Commission have to give their approval before implementation of the first stages of the plan can begin.
