by Wyoming Department of Transportation
May 6, 2012
The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), District 3 Staff will be hosting their annual public meeting, the 2012 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) meeting in Pinedale at the Sublette County Library at 155 South Tyler Avenue on May 9, 2012 at 2 p.m.
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 Sublette County.
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 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.
