WVDOT seeking input on six-year transportation plan

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) is hosting a virtual public workshop from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 1, 2022, for the public to review information on future federal transportation funding and projects for the next six years and provide comments on the Draft Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) document. The workshop will provide a venue for the public to ask questions and discuss the programs established in the Draft STIP with the project team.

Please visit the STIP website at https://transportation.wv.gov/highways/Programming/STIP/Pages/default.aspx any time during the workshop to access the virtual meeting.

The six-year Draft STIP covering federal fiscal years 2023 through 2028 was based upon information obtained from prior public workshop held on Thursday, June 30, 2022. The Draft 2023-2028 STIP identifies planned programs and project investments over the six-year period to fund the operation, preservation, rehabilitation, and expansion of West Virginia’s highway and transit assets statewide with the revenue that is estimated to be available during the STIP period.

Each time the STIP is updated, the public is given the opportunity to participate in the transportation planning process. This public workshop will initiate the official 45-day public comment period for the adoption of the Draft 2023-2028 STIP. The public is encouraged to provide comments on the published STIP material located at the link above. The 45-day public comment period will conclude on October 15, 2022. Comments and questions can be submitted electronically via DOTSTIP@wv.gov or by mail to:

Mr. Chris Kinsey
Programming Division,
West Virginia Division of Highways,
1900 Kanawha Boulevard, Building 5, Room 650,
Charleston, West Virginia 25305
