Wyoming transportation officials know how they plan on spending their new fuel tax revenue.
A ten cent per gallon fuel tax increase went into effect in July.
Wyoming Department of Transportation officials say the increase will generate about $47.5 million per year through 2016 for additional highway maintenance projects.
WYDOT will undertake 19 projects next year including three in Northeast Wyoming.
But there aren't any set for the Sheridan area until 2016, when workers will lay down new pavement on Highway 335 south of Big Horn and Highway 193 near Story.
"Basically the ten cent fuel tax projects are to maintain the highway system in their current condition. That's the goal behind that and how they exist today," said WYDOT public relations specialist Ronda Holwell.
WYDOT has a total of 52 new projects planned throughout the state through 2016 thanks to the fuel tax increase.
