Balancing Budgets and Priorities In Wyoming
Two Minute Update - November 14, 2011
In this Two-Minute State DOT Update video, Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) Director John Cox describes his department’s strategy for preserving highways and bridges during Wyoming’s current transportation funding crisis. In the absence of additional funding, Cox says changing the department’s focus to preservation will make the decline in the condition of the state’s highways more gradual. However, this approach will also result in fewer safety improvements to highways and a smaller number of projects designed to accommodate increasing traffic volumes. Cox says the transportation debate in Wyoming appears to have moved from whether there is a need for additional state funding to where the needed funding can be found. “Transportation funding is an incredibly important conversation to have in Wyoming and in other states because the federal picture is pretty bleak right now,” Cox says.
