May transportation meetings to address future highway projects and move to pavement preservation

A series of public meetings is scheduled this month to address future highway improvement projects in Central and Northwest Wyoming.

A key part of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) process involves annual meetings with public officials and other individuals who play a key transportation role in Wyoming, according to Shelby G. Carlson, P.E., Wyoming Department of Transportation district engineer in Basin.

"These meetings provide an opportunity for local officials and citizens to provide input into WYDOT's planning process," Carlson said.

WYDOT has planned these meetings in May to receive your input and answer questions:

--  1:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 28, 2013 – Fremont County Courthouse, Commission Chambers, 450 N 2nd, Lander.

--   10 a.m., Wednesday, May 29, 2013 – Hot Springs County Government Annex Building, 117 N . 4th St., Thermopolis.

--  1:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 29, 2013 – Washakie County Courthouse, Commission Room, 1001 Big Horn Ave., Worland.

--  10 a.m., Thursday, May 30, 2013 – Park County Courthouse, Commission Room, 1002 Sheridan Ave., Cody.

--  2 p.m., Thursday, May 30, 2013 – Big Horn County Courthouse, Commission Room, 420 West C, Basin.

The STIP is a prioritized construction plan for the 1,326 miles of highway in Northwest Wyoming. Projects enter the STIP process based on a complex long range planning and needs analysis process, along with public input on known development issues that impact highway capacity.

"At the meetings, we will summarize and seek your input on projects planned for future construction in Northwest Wyoming, and we'd like information from you on community development and local planning that will impact the state transportation system," Carlson said. "If you have an interest in the future of our transportation infrastructure in Northwest Wyoming, please attend one of these meetings to offer input."
