Local Government Coordination

WYDOT interacts continually with county, city and town governments across Wyoming in relation to a full range of transportation issues. The agency’s primary point of contact for this function is the Local Government Coordination (LGC) Section, located at WYDOT Headquarters in Cheyenne.

LGC personnel coordinate WYDOT’s off-system and local programs and public transit programs. In addition to working with local governments, LGC also coordinates with public and private groups, and the general public.

Non-Metropolitan Local Consultation Policy


The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) currently conducts annual and ongoing public involvement processes for transportation projects throughout the state.  The current public involvement process includes the following:  Project specific local public involvement within each WYDOT district; State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) presentations to county, town and city local elected officials; STIP presentations to Tribal Council officials; Annual Urban Systems Advisory Committee review for participating communities; Long Range Transportation Planning (LRTP) outreach through WYDOT’s Public involvement, media, and website interaction.

WYDOT undertakes a review every five years per Code of Federal Regulation 450.210 (2)(b)(1) to consider improvements to the existing local consultation policy.  Should you have comments or suggestions on the current process please forward them to WYDOT’s Systems Planning Engineer by December 31, 2015. Submit Questions and/or Comments online, or you may submit your comments in writing to:
