Highway Improvement Meetings Scheduled This Month
Written by wendycorr on July 1, 2019
A series of public meetings is scheduled in July to address future highway improvement projects in northwest Wyoming.
Wyoming Department of Transportation District Engineer Pete Hallsten of Basin says that a key part of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) process involves annual meetings with public officials and other individuals who play key transportation partnership roles in Wyoming.
On Tuesday, July 2nd, meetings will be held in Thermopolis at 10:30 a.m. and in Basin at 1:30 p.m.; and on Tuesday, July 16th, there will be a meeting in Worland at 11 a.m. and in Cody at 2 p.m. All meetings will be held in the County Commission Chambers at the courthouses in each community.
The STIP is a prioritized construction plan for the 1,326 miles of highway in northwest Wyoming.
This year, WYDOT has added an online map to assist in collecting public comment and feedback. The map can be found on the STIP web site (http://www.dot.state.wy.us/STIP) by clicking on “STIP Public Comment Map.”
