(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – An update to WYDOT’s “State Transportation Improvement Program” (STIP) for 2014 has been issued and is available for viewing 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 current fiscal year. The STIP is published annually and updates are issued quarterly.

In Fremont County, STIP projects include the Mortimore Lane pedestrian and bike path near Lander, the reconstruction and overlay on Eight Mile Road south of Midvale, and the Meadows Landslide mitigation project near Dubois.

The document can be found in PDF format within the “Planning/Research/Projects” section of the website. The most recent update, titled “2014 1st Quarter STIP Addendum,” is located under the “STIP Project Listing” tab. Printed copies of the 2014 STIP are located at WYDOT offices, libraries, and city and county government offices.

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.
