Public information guidelines for transportation projects
Public information is an important component of transportation
projects and studies. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation
(WisDOT) has established some rules
and best practices
to clarify the roles and expectations of WisDOT staff and
consultants handling public information activities for projects and
studies. Consult this page periodically for updates. Additional guidance on public involvement can be found in
Chapter 6 of the Facilities
Development Manual (FDM).
Samples and templates
Various materials are used to provide information to the public
about transportation projects and studies. This includes news
releases, project newsletters/reports, public information meetings
(PIM), correspondence and advertising. Some common materials are
provided below as "best practice" examples. Additional
examples will be posted as they become available. In some cases,
templates are provided. The templates have been established as the
preferred format for certain types of communications.
