Planned Transportation Spending
An examination of Wyoming’s 2011-2014 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program reveals that road maintenance/minor widening projects account for the largest chunk of planned spending (80 percent). A handful of projects that add capacity to the state’s roads comprise the next largest category (8 percent) and projects classified as “other” account for 4 percent of the proposed spending. Transit spending comprises 3 percent of the planned spending, as do bridge maintenance/replacement projects. Safety and bicycle/pedestrian projects each account for 1 percent of the STIP. Road or bridge projects with bicycle/pedestrian components (such as adding sidewalks when reconstructing a roadway) make up less than 1 percent of the total, and no spending on bridge capacity expansion projects was identified. share
