Meeting Notice

9/17/2021

 

A neighborhood meeting is to be held Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 5:30 P.M. at Newcastle’s Council Chambers, 10 W. Warwick, to discuss the plans for constructing a concrete pedestrian pathway 8-foot in width along the south side of Highway 16 from the Ihgway 16 bypass to Morrissey Road. The Pathway adds an important segment to the Safe Routes to School program. Currently there is no pathway from the Highway 16 bypass to the west end of town. Adding this segment will encourage non-motorized travel and provide safety for those that currently travel along the edge of the highway. The pahtway is typically to be placed along the back of curb. The curb is 8 feet in width providing a safety buffer with vehicular traffic that has a posted speed limit of 40 mph. 

Esimated costs are $442,000. Proposed funding for the project is to be 80% grant from the federal Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) administered by the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) and 20% match from local funds. 

I look forward to the participation to all those interested. If you are unable to attend or would like to further comment please stop by the city office or call me at (307) 746-3535. Comments can be sent to my attention at the City of Newcastle, 10 W. Warwick, Newcastle, WY 82701.

 

Sincerely, 

Mike Moore

City Engineer
