Sept. 3 public meetings in Fremont County to address future northwest Wyoming highway projects

    Annual public meetings are scheduled in September in Fremont County to address future highway and bridge improvement projects in northwest Wyoming.

    The State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) process involves annual meetings with public officials and citizens who play key transportation partnership roles in Wyoming, according to Wyoming Department of Transportation District Engineer Pete Hallsten, P.E., of Basin.

    “The STIP is a six-year program approved by the Wyoming Transportation Commission. It provides a snapshot of existing and expected projects and their schedules, and it is continually updated,” Hallsten said.

    The STIP is a prioritized construction plan for the 1,326 miles of highway in northwest Wyoming, also known as WYDOT District 5.

    Public involvement is a crucial component of WYDOT’s mission to provide a safe, high-quality and efficient transportation system.

    WYDOT has public meetings in Fremont County to receive input and answer questions from citizens, and local and tribal government officials:

    11 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2024 — Fremont County — Fremont County Courthouse, County Commission Chambers, 450 North 2nd Street, Lander;
