Public involvement is an important component of transportation
projects and studies. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) established rules and best practices to clarify the roles and expectations of WisDOT staff and consultants handling public involvement activities for projects and studies. Guidance on public involvement can be found in
Chapter 6 of the Facilities Development Manual (FDM).
Various materials are used to provide information to the public about transportation projects and studies. This includes news releases, project newsletters/reports, public involvement meetings (PIM), correspondence and advertising.
