September 1, 2015
A draft of Wyoming Department of Transportation's "State Transportation Improvement Program" (STIP) for 2016 has been issued and is available for viewing and comment. The document is posted on the agency's website, www.dot.state.wy.us.
The STIP contains a listing of highway and bridge projects, and also airport improvement work, that WYDOT tentatively expects to let to contract during the upcoming fiscal year. The STIP is published annually and updates are issued quarterly.
The STIP document, in PDF format, can be accessed by clicking, in succession, the "Construction & Engineering" tab and then the line reading "STIP Project Listing."
Comments about the 2016 STIP should be directed to Tim McDowell, State Programming Engineer for WYDOT. Comments can be submitted by using the "Contact WYDOT" utility at the bottom of the website (select "Other" as topic) or via mail to 5300 Bishop Blvd., Cheyenne, WY 82009.
In addition to current year projects, the STIP includes a listing of planned transportation projects slated for future years, as well as a summary of pass-through 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 and other issues which may arise during the advance project design phase.
