WYDOT Discusses Local Transportation Funding In Report

Mark Gillett, Engineer for the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT)'s District Four, gave a report to the Johnson County Commissioners during their last regular meeting.

He touched briefly on transportation funding from both the federal and state level that is annually made to local governments through a number of specialized programs.

In fiscal year 2015, WYDOT will make $73 million available to cities and counties; $24 million for roads and highways, $35 million for airports, and $14 million for mass transit.

Local funding programs through the MAP-21 (or Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century) Federal Highway Bill that cities and counties can apply for include TEAS, or Transportation Enhancement Activities-State; CRIP, or Commission Road Improvement Program; BROS, or Bridge Replacement Off-System; TEAL, or Transportation Enhancement Activities-Local, which now includes the Safe Routes To School program; and the CMAQ, or Congestion Mitigation Air Quality program which locally is used for dust mitigation on county roads.
Other programs are available to local governments as well.

We will continue looking at WYDOT's report to the Johnson County Commissioners through this week.
