Wyoming Pathways released a report from a 2021 Wyoming Active Transportation Community Needs Survey.

About 134 residents responded to the survey.
Among the suggested projects is a paved trail along US Highway 14 to connect the towns of Ranchester and Dayton, so cyclists and walkers do not have to use the road itself.
Other suggestions include an improved road bike network between Story and Big Horn, or Story and Sheridan.
Another was wider shoulder works on Wyoming State Highway 332 between Brundage Lane and the Big Horn Y intersection and on Wyoming State Highway 335 between the intersection and the town of Big Horn for use by cyclists.
