More about the Program
The STIP is a six-year program approved by the transportation commission. It provides a snapshot of existing and expected projects and their schedules and is continually updated. The current STIP is for the years 2022-2027 and represents the planned construction, preliminary engineering, and right-of-way costs of each project. The program also indicates the share of federal funding, state funding and other funding sources for each project. WYDOT pledges to do its best to adhere to this program and to serve the public interest through these projects.
