BLM Casper extends Price Road closure

Casper, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management Casper Field Office has extended the closure of Price Road to December 16 to complete ongoing road construction. The BLM first announced closure of the road in August 2022.

Located roughly 18 miles southwest of Casper, across from the Miles Landing boat ramp and off County Road 316 (Trapper Road), Price Road is a popular day-use area and is especially known for its fishing access. The original 2.15-mile route and areas adjacent to it had become degraded from heavy use and off-route travel.

The BLM is upgrading portions of the existing road to improve public access and installing culverts and riprap to mitigate erosion. Barriers will be placed to define the route and discourage off-road travel. Other portions of the road are also being re-routed to prevent damage to natural resources. Obsolete or unauthorized road segments will be reclaimed.

For more information, please call the Casper Field Office at (307) 261-7600.


The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 western states, including Alaska, on behalf of the American people. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. Our mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
