Homeowners Worried About Oil Trucks
GLENROCK, Wyo. (AP) — Homeowners north of Glenrock say they're worried about having to deal with more truck traffic as oil development picks up in their area.
One resident along North Monkey Road says he bought signs telling truck drivers to keep off the private road. Orvie Stoneking says the $50 he spent seems to have stopped the problem of oil industry trucks cutting through his neighborhood.
Last summer, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management leased 240 acres in the area to Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy for possible oil drilling.
Some landowners tell the Casper Star-Tribune they want the Converse County Commission to do more to regulate oilfield traffic, such as by posting signs for truck drivers.
Commissioners say they don't intend to begin putting signs up on private roads.
