Pennsylvania state law requires PennDOT to prepare an update to Pennsylvania’s Twelve Year Transportation Program every two years and submit it to the Pa. State Transportation Commission (STC). It’s then sent to the Governor, the General Assembly and the Secretary of Transportation. The purpose of the program is to evaluate the condition of our transportation system and create a blueprint of prioritized transportation projects in order to ensure economic development throughout our state.
In years past, public input was garnered through methods such as in-person public meetings and written testimony. To increase convenience and ease of participation, online options have been added including next week’s first-ever interactive online public meeting.
PA’s transportation needs far exceed our state’s resources. You are being given the opportunity to voice your opinion on how you believe projects should be prioritized.
