The Flaming Gorge Way Corridor Study project was started in January 2020 and funded jointly by The City of Green River and Wyoming Department of Transportation. The project purpose is to develop an integrated land use, transportation, and urban design vision and plan for Flaming Gorge Way in Downtown Green River.

The project team will work together with stakeholders and community members to prepare recommendations and solutions to address access for pedestrians, residents, visitors, and emergency responders, improve safety, mitigate congestion, and position Flaming Gorge Way for reinvestment and redevelopment.

Recommendations will include specific street improvements that enhance safety and functionality for all users, alongside being appropriate for the scale, character, and land uses in the corridor.
