Implementation Answers

1. What are the requirements for accessing the LRIP Web application?

To access the Extranet Web application, you will need an authorized (Wisconsin User ID, also known as a WAMS ID) access and Internet connectivity. There is additional information related to system requirements on the WisDOT Extranet FAQs page.

2. Will the system require additional software on my computer?

No. A computer with a Web browser and an Internet connection should be able to access the LRIP Web application. You will not need to download any additional software or plug-ins onto your computer.

For more information regarding minimum requirements for connecting to the LRIP Web System, please see the Extranet System Requirements page.

4. I already have a WAMS ID for WISLR, do I need another one?

If you have a WAMS ID, you will not need to get another one. You will still need to obtain the appropriate privileges to use the LRIP Web System. WisDOT will coordinate this process with county highway commissioners before implementation.

5. How will I access the LRIP Web System, once I have the authorized WAMS ID and necessary Internet requirements?

There will be a link to launch the application on the LRIP Web System index page.

Alternatively, you will be able to type the LRIP Web System Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (https) address, which will be provided to you before implementation, into the address bar at the top of your Web browser.

6. Will the Web System take me step-by-step through the process?

Yes. This will be a change in the way we do business under LRIP. As with any new system, it will take time to learn how to use.

We hope you will find that the Web System will be very intuitive to use, walking you step-by-step through tasks. The system will include help pages to assist you.

After implementation, WisDOT will provide ongoing guidance and support to assist you with any issues you may have related to using the system.
