WYDOT public meeting on 2017 STIP June 7
June 3, 2017
The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), District 3 Staff, will be hosting the 2017 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) meeting in Pinedale on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, 10 a.m. at the BOCES Building at 665 cN Tyler Ave.
The public is invited to attend.
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. The actual funding level available will depend on congressional appropriations, as well as state appropriations. This STIP presents the planned construction and preliminary engineering programs for the next fiscal year in your county.
Local projects will be discussed and there will be an opportunity for the public to ask questions concerning future work and issues, including the following projects:
• US 189 improvements
• Daniel Junction/Hoback Rim North
• Big Piney to Daniel/Cottonwood Creek
WYDOT utilizes 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.
The meeting in Pinedale will focus on projects and issues in Sublette County with an overview of the projects that are planned district-wide. Input from local organizations, such as yours, on area development and projects, is beneficial to WYDOT when prioritizing state and federal highway projects.
Funding programs available through WYDOT for local government projects will also be discussed. The meeting will begin with a short presentation, followed by a question and answer session with WYDOT engineers.
