The Town of Cokeville and Lincoln County have initiated a study to recommend future bicycle and pedestrian improvements for the Cokeville area. The $40,000 study, known formally as the Transportation Alternatives Master Plan, is funded in part by a grant from the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT).
Community leaders selected Y2 Consultants to complete the planning study. In coming weeks, we will inventory existing bike and pedestrian facilities, count traffic, and collect employment and housing data to estimate local pedestrian and bicycling travel needs for children and adults.
For safety during the Covid-19 pandemic, all public involvement will be conducted via on-line meetings, Facebook, email, mail, and phone. Interested citizens are welcome and encouraged to contribute ideas and preferences for the Plan. As study materials are developed, they will be posted on the project Facebook page: Cokeville Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. Citizens can also contact Sara Fagan at Y2 Consultants at 307-733-2999 or email Cokeville@y2consultants.com with questions and comments. The Town of Cokeville will mail household surveys as well to determine the extent of bicycling and walking, and to solicit public opinions. Two Virtual “Zoom” Meetings are planned on July 30th and November 19th.
Products of the study will include a Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan, a Safe Routes to School Plan, a Wayfinding Signage Plan, and an Implementation Plan. The plan will recommend a series of future component projects and budgets to complete a non-motorized network to serve the Cokeville community for many years to come.
