The Wyoming Department of Transportation is set to host an open house Wednesday evening, giving people the opportunity to comment on its plans for a new truck arrestor near Wilson, the Snake River Bridge replacement, a Tribal Trail Connector and a Highway 22 expansion, among other projects.
The meeting will focus on WYDOT’s draft statewide transportation improvement program, or STIP, for the upcoming fiscal year. That’s essentially a roadmap for projects WYDOT plans to complete through 2027. Transportation officials have opened a public comment period on the draft document, which closes Friday.
The workshop will run from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Teton County Commissioners’ Chambers at 200 S. Willow St.
Other public meetings with WYDOT are also being planned.
One is a meeting with the County Commission, set for Sept. 20. Another is a meeting specifically about the Snake River Bridge project, which is being planned for October.
People who are unable to attend Wednesday’s meeting can comment by snail mail, email or an online survey on the STIP through Friday.
The draft is available at DOT.State.WY.us/STIP, where commenters can download a PDF or explore an interactive map (found under Navigate on the right side of the webpage).
