EVANSVILLE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The town of Evansville hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new access road Tuesday morning.

The project began back in 2005 when Mayor Phil Hines realized a need for the road. All access roads to Evansville cut through the south part of town, so if a train were to ever get stuck, there would be no access to the north part of town. This new access road prevents this from happening.

Memorial Drive runs about a mile and connects Metro Road in Casper to Evansville.

The addition will provide an easier way for emergency services to reach northern Evansville.

“We’re just extremely excited to have the road as a part of our community and look forward to great use out of it,” said Chad Edwards, the Mayor of Evansville.

The road is now open to the public.
