Tribal Trails connector

The planned Tribal Trails connector will roughly follow the same trajectory as the existing pathway.

A majority of a Tribal Trail Connector stakeholder group endorsed pumping the brakes on planning for the controversial road, but their idea was dismissed Friday by the rest of the group.

Seven stakeholders on the 10-member group sent a letter to county officials detailing a new alternative option after feeling dissatisfied with the designs being considered.

The stakeholders’ alternative to put the brakes on until the whole picture is understood is the wisest, safest and most economically efficient way to proceed. To automatically say no to the stakeholders’ common-sense alternative, which has been overwhelmingly expressed and eluded to in public comment proves that there is no exit. WYDOT and the pro commercial growth powers that be have made clear the road will be built no matter what the public input is. The process is a sham.
