Draft of 2017 STIP project listing now available

August 12, 2016

A draft of WYDOT's State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for 2017 has been issued and is available for viewing and comment. 

The STIP contains a listing of highway and bridge projects, and also airport improvement work WYDOT tentatively expects to contract for during the upcoming fiscal year that begins Oct. 1. The STIP is published annually and updates are issued quarterly.

Printed copies of the STIP and the quarterly updates are located at WYDOT offices, libraries, and city and county government offices.

Comments about the 2017 STIP should be directed to Tim McDowell, state programming engineer for WYDOT. Comments can be submitted via email, or by mail to 5300 Bishop Blvd., Cheyenne, WY 82009.

In addition to the 2017 projects, the draft STIP includes a listing of planned transportation projects slated through 2022, as well as a summary of pass-through federal funding for public transit programs throughout the state.

Highway projects are listed as either rural or urban, and are further broken down by functional classification; namely, interstate, arterial, collector or local. The listings also note the general character of work, such as reconstruction, resurfacing, bridge replacement, etc.

WYDOT emphasizes that the STIP project listing is tentative and is revised in accordance with changes in funding levels, highway conditions and other issues that may arise during the advance project design phase.
