WYDOT calls for transportation input from public

June 19, 2019

ROCK SPRINGS – The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) will be hosting a public meeting starting at 10 a.m. this Thursday, June 20, at the WYDOT offices 3200 Elk Street, in Rock Springs, regarding the 2019 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). 

The STIP is a six-year approved program that illustrates WYDOT’s future projects and funding. The financial budget is constrained based on projected federal and state funding. WYDOT uses a continuing and comprehensive process of asset management that encourages input from various sources, which assists in determining capital improvement projects. Capital improvement projects are revised and confirmed through input from engineering studies, WYDOT officials, the Transportation Commission and through public communication at STIP meetings.   

Public involvement is a crucial component of WYDOT’s mission to provide a safe, high-quality and efficient transportation system. WYDOT strives to exercise good stewardship of our resources and regards public input as a valuable asset in achieving those goals. This year, WYDOT has added an online map to assist in collecting public comment and feedback. The map can be found on the STIP webpage by clicking on “STIP Public Comment Map.”
There will be information at the meeting about projects and issues in Sweetwater County, as well as projects that are planned district-wide. Information on funding programs available through WYDOT for local government projects will also be available.
