A preview of upcoming highway construction work in Wyoming can be found in the "State Transportation Improvement Program" (STIP) for 2012, issued by WYDOT and available for viewing on the agency’s Web site, www.dot.state.wy.us. The document can be found in PDF format within the "Planning/Research/Projects" section of the Web site.
The 2012 STIP contains a listing of highway and bridge projects, and also airport improvement work, that WYDOT tentatively expects to let to contract during the current fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30. In addition, the STIP includes a projection of planned transportation projects slated for future years, as well as a summary of pass-through 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.
Because the needs of Wyoming’s transportation system exceed the department’s budget, WYDOT uses a comprehensive needs analysis, along with a thorough public consultation process, to decide what projects to include in the STIP.
WYDOT emphasizes that the STIP project listing is tentative and is revised quarterly in accordance with changes in funding levels and other issues which may arise during the advance project design phase.
Printed copies of the 2012 STIP are located at WYDOT offices, libraries, and city and county government offices.
