WVDOT – Future of Transportation
The West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) is seeking input to help guide the future of transportation in West Virginia. Based upon information obtained from prior public workshop held on June 30,2022, WVDOT staff has developed a Draft 6-year Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) covering federal fiscal years (FFY’s) 2023-2028.
The Draft 2023-2028 STIP identifies planned programs and project investments over the 6-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.
WVDOT is hosting a virtual public workshop on September 1, 2022, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, for the public to review information on future federal transportation funding and projects for the 6-year period and provide comments on the Draft 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 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. 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:
