Help guide the future of transportation in West Virginia at virtual public meeting

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A virtual public meeting previously scheduled for June 17 to discuss the West Virginia Department of Transportation’s 2023-2028 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program has been rescheduled to June 30, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Gov. Jim Justice declared Juneteenth to be observed on Friday, June 17, 2022.

Please see the Amended Notification below:

The West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) is seeking input to help guide the future of transportation in West Virginia. WVDOT is in the process of developing its new 6-year Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The 2023-2028 STIP identifies project investment over a 6-year period to fund the operation, preservation, rehabilitation, and expansion of West Virginia’s highway and transit assetts statewide with the revenue that is estimated to be available.

WVDOT is hosting a virtual public workshop on June 30, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., for the public to review information on future funding levels and provide input on the potential program categories and funding levels for the 6-year period. The workshop will provide a venue for the public to ask questions and discuss the program with the project team. The input will be used to help formulate a draft STIP document that will be available for review and comment at a later date. Please visit the STIP website at any time during the workshop to access the virtual meeting.

Each time the STIP is updated, the public is given the opportunity to participate in the transportation planning process. The public is encouraged to provide comments on the STIP through July 14, 2022. Comments and questions can be submitted electronically via DOTSTIP@wv.gov or by mail to:
