Budget Cuts Limit WYDOT Wish List

Wyoming Department of Transportation

The local WYDOT district 2 offices presented the annual State Transportation Improvement Program, otherwise known as STIP, Tuesday evening.

Local Wyoming Department of Transportation Spokesman, Jeff Goetz, says it’s essentially a project “wish list” for the next six years and “wish” may be the best way to describe it as the department has an 8 percent budget cut to absorb.

In Natrona County and Casper he says the immediate future continues to be about overlay and maintenance, but there are a couple projects coming down the pike.

“2013 we’re moving forward on the CY and Poplar Street intersection reconstruction. So I’m sure a lot of people around the Casper area will be happy to hear about that one.”

In 2013 there’s also 8 miles of shoulder work for Hat Six Road and in 2014 bridge restructuring on Bryan Stock Trail.

Current projects, Goetz says, include grading of the first section of the West Belt Loop, widening of Highway 220, which is ahead of schedule, and the Morad Park Trail expansion, which is a Wydot “TEAL” project that happens later this summer.
