Highway Department planning for future…with your help
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Got a favorite pothole? Stoplight timing at 390 and 22 bothering you? WYDOT wants to hear all about it.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation, District 3 staff, will be hosting the 2017 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) meeting in Jackson on June 8 at 2:30 pm. The public meeting will take place at the WYDOT Offices at 1040 Evans Road.
STIP is a six-year approved program that illustrates WYDOT’s future projects and funding. The budget is tight. It always is, right? But WYDOT wants to hear from its customers (you drivers) on what you would like to see take shape over the next six years. 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:
- S. Highway 89 – south end section
- WYO 390
- Snake River Bridge
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 Jackson will focus on projects and issues in Teton County with an overview of the projects that are planned district-wide. Input from local organizations and individuals 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.
