Transportation Department Seeking Public Input to Develop Statewide Frieght Plan
WYDOT is seeking public input to assist in the development of a Statewide Freight Plan (SFP).Spokesman Dave Kingham says interested members of the public are encouraged to take a short online survey to help the department implement a broad approach to statewide planning that will integrate freight elements into the larger Statewide Long Range Transportation Plan.
Public input is necessary to the development of a plan that accurately reflects the current needs and future opportunities for freight-related economic development in Wyoming.
WYDOT has been in communication with a variety of public and private stakeholders throughout the SFP development process and would like to encourage members of the general public to share their opinions.
The survey is being conducted to:
• gain a better understanding on how goods are moved across the state transportation system to improve the mobility of freight in and through the state;
• Obtain public comments about improvements that could be made to the transportation system in Wyoming;
• Obtain information concerning challenges in supply chain logistics; and
• Quantify information about movements of goods between regions, including the origins and destinations of products.
All information provided in the survey will remain strictly confidential.
