PennDOT Invites Public to Help Shape Pennsylvania’s Transportation Future

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The public is encouraged to visit to provide their input on transportation priorities for the update of the commonwealth’s Twelve Year Transportation Program before the survey closes on May 29.

PennDOT and the State Transportation Commission (STC) request public feedback on transportation priorities and specific issues by completing an online survey. Accessing the survey is easy:

“We want to ensure that we’re meeting the needs of our customers,” said PennDOT Secretary and STC Chairwoman Leslie S. Richards. “This online survey provides an easy and accessible way for the public to help shape Pennsylvania’s transportation future and I strongly encourage everyone to participate and become part of the transportation planning process in PA.”

To date, more than 2,100 citizens have participated and identified almost 7,000 specific transportation needs across the state. According to the preliminary survey results, Pennsylvanians’ top three priorities for transportation investment are to:

1. Preserve, rebuild, and replace aging bridges
2. Reduce fatalities through safety and infrastructure improvements; and,
3. Improve pavement quality and conditions.

The Twelve Year Transportation Program, which serves as a blueprint of prioritized transportation projects, is updated every two years through a cooperative effort among the State Transportation Commission (STC), PennDOT and its 24 regional planning partners. The goal is to enable all Pennsylvanians to contribute their priorities and suggestions.

The STC evaluates and assesses the resources needed to maintain and expand the State’s transportation system. The 15-member Commission includes Richards, 10 private citizens appointed by the Governor, and the majority and minority chairs of the State Senate and House Transportation Committees.

Help us get the word out by sharing the survey on your Facebook and Twitter pages, and use the hashtag #TalkPA12Yr.
