WYDOT works extensively with numerous partners in the private sector to improve and maintain the state's transportation infrastructure, sponsoring millions of dollars of work annually.
This section of WYDOT's Web site contains a range of useful information and links for contractors, consultants, vendors and others interested in doing business with WYDOT. Also included are notices about surplus equipment and property to be sold by the department, as well as information about training opportunities and speciality certifications.
WYDOT engineers and technical support staff perform a wide range of tasks in the course of maintaining and improving Wyoming’s transportation infrastructure. At headquarters in Cheyenne and numerous field offices across the state, engineers and technicians oversee development of plans and specifications for improvement plans for highways, bridges and related infrastructure.
Engineering processes are also integral to WYDOT’s environmental services, geology, highway safety, photo and surveys, right of way, materials and testing laboratory and other programs. In the field, resident engineering crews supervise actual construction, typically hundreds of projects annually worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Engineering and technical expertise is also used for ongoing maintenance efforts after construction is completed.
From engineers who design and supervise road construction, to snowplow drivers who keep those roads safe, to troopers who serve and protect highway users, to planners who help communities obtain funding for airport improvements, WYDOT is committed to building a better transportation system for the traveling public.
A majority of WYDOT’s budget and efforts go toward planning, building and maintaining the 6,800 miles of highway that connect Wyoming’s communities and surrounding states. But as a full-service transportation provider, the agency has numerous other responsibilities. In addition to coordinating improvements at 40 airports around the state, agency personnel also collect fuel taxes and user fees that are used to fund transportation projects; oversee production of license plates for distribution to the county governments; test drivers and issue drivers licenses; enforce traffic laws, and regulate commercial vehicle operations.
Overall leadership for WYDOT is provided by Director John Cox and his executive staff team who administer five divisions: Del McOmie (Chief Engineer), Dennis Byrne (Aeronautics), Gregg Fredrick (Engineering and Planning), Tom Loftin (Support Services), Col. John Butler (Highway Patrol), and Ken Shultz (Operations).
