Why do we have the WSDOT Style Guide?

The WSDOT Style Guide is provided to help writers and editors working for the Washington State Department of Transportation provide clear and consistent information. Adopting a consistent style reinforces our agency brand and makes it easier for our customers to understand and use the information we provide. 

WSDOT employs communication professionals throughout all regions of the state to keep the public informed about the activities of the agency. The WSDOT communications team has developed a trusted reputation as a one-stop news shop using traditional and new media.
