Wydot Loses Bid For Wider Right Of Way

The Wyoming Department of Transportation Thursday lost its fight to gain a wider right of way for the planned west belt loop around Casper.

District Court Judge,  Scott Skavdahl, limited Wydot to a 300 foot wide easement.  The State had tried to condemn as much as 500 feet, saying it would eventually become a four lane highway.

The judge said if that need ever arises, further condemnation proceedings could be initiated.

The owners of the Flying Seven Ranch also protested Wydot’s offer of 150-thousand dollar for its 29 acres, saying it was worth 650-thousand.  The judge ordered separate hearings on the price.

In making his determination, Skavdahl said Wyoming’s eminent domain laws should be strictly construed in favor of the landowner.
