Proposal to increase Casper, WY speed limits crosses first hurdle

In a few more weeks, several Casper streets could see their speed limits increased.

The Casper City Council approved the proposed ordinance changes on first reading Tuesday, Nov. 19. They’ll need to pass the changes on two further readings before they will become official.

The proposal includes reverting the portion of East Second Street in front of the Wyoming Medical Center to a 30 mph speed zone.
