BLM seeks public input on proposed improvements to Muddy Mountain Road, parking areas

CASPER, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management, in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration, is seeking public input on a proposal to improve Muddy Mountain Road and parking areas within the Muddy Mountain Environmental Education Area south of Casper. The 14-day public comment period ends October 10.

The BLM was recently awarded funding to improve access to the 1,260-acre recreation area through the Federal Lands Transportation Program. The proposed project would rehabilitate and resurface nearly 7.4 miles of road and improve parking at the main entrance, Rim Campground, and north and south entrances to the natural area.

The BLM and Federal Highway Administration are asking for public input to identify issues or provide information that could be useful in analyzing the proposal.

Written comments may be submitted electronically by email at or by mail to the Bureau of Land Management Casper Field Office, Attn: Cullen Hardy, 2987 Prospector Dr., Casper, WY 82604.
