Wyoming receives more than 700 Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) shipments annually. It is the goal of the WIPP program to conduct the transportation of this waste in a safe and uneventful manner.
The WIPP transportation corridor in Wyoming consists of I-80 and I-25 from Cheyenne to the Colorado border. The WIPP Coordinator provides oversight of tasks agreed to under an annual cooperative agreement with the Department of Energy (DOE) through the Western Governors’ Association (WGA). The coordinator also serves as the governor’s representative on the WGA’s WIPP Technical Advisory Group.
