The transition from highway to Interstate did not have the impact on Evanston some residents feared. In 1970, a study of I-80 impact on Evanston and southern Wyoming concluded that "I-80 has contributed and will continue to contribute to the level of economic activity in Evanston." The town had to use all of its other resources, but its "economy depends upon natural gas and oil wells, ranching, transportation, and the state hospital. It is a typical small town, with a mixture of prosperity and difficulty." Evan­ston is a railroad town that continues to grow beside the roads distributing its goods and funneling traffic. It has hugged the transportation lifeline and changed with its needs.
