The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is preparing to develop a State Highway Investment Plan (SHIP). The Plan will articulate the state’s transportation infrastructure needs and communicate WisDOT’s stewardship approach for managing the roadway system. The Plan will build upon previously published long-range plans, the Wisconsin Transportation Finance and Policy Commission’s report, Keep Wisconsin Moving – Smart Investments, Measureable Results, and the Department’s initiative Transportation Moves Wisconsin. The Plan will include a 20-year planning horizon.
The Plan will also discuss and incorporate federal requirements outlined in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST ACT) enacted December 4, 2015. It will also discuss transportation funding needs, challenges, and opportunities over the 20-year planning horizon. Department priorities, including safety, mobility, reliability and economic development, will provide the basis for analysis throughout the Plan.
In addition, while the Plan will focus on the state’s roads, it will also discuss the importance of an integrated multimodal transportation system to the state’s economy and quality of life.
The Plan is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
Questions about individual projects should be sent to the WisDOT Region office where the project is located.
