WYDOT hosts public meeting on improvements

JACKSON, WY — The Wyoming Department of Transportation will host a public meeting Monday afternoon to provide updates on the 2019 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

The STIP is a six-year approved program that illustrates WYDOT’s future projects and funding. Officials at Monday’s meeting will provide information about projects and issues in Teton County, as well as projects that are planned district-wide. Information on funding programs available through WYDOT for local governments will also be available.

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.

Public involvement is a crucial component of WYDOT’s mission to provide a safe, high quality, and efficient transportation system. WYDOT strives to exercise good stewardship of our resources and regards public input as a valuable asset in achieving those goals. This year, WYDOT has added an online map to assist in collecting public comment and feedback. The map can be found online here (click “STIP Public Comment Mat).

The meeting will be held in Teton County Library’s Ordway Auditorium from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Monday, June 17.
