CASPER, Wyo. — The stretch of Platte River Trails from Mike Lansing Field to the pedestrian bridge behind the North Casper softball fields will close overnight this Sunday for mosquito abatement, the City of Casper announced today.

The closure will begin at 6 p.m. Sunday, June 11 and remain in place through dawn Monday, June 12.

“This short closure will allow Natrona County Weed and Pest employees to effectively spray the area while keeping citizens safe,” the release said.
