WYDOT’s 2017 STIP approved

October 25, 2016

The Wyoming Department of Transportation has an official State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for 2017.

The Wyoming Transportation Commission, the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration recently approved the new 2017 document.

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.

In addition to the 2017 projects, the 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.
