Public Encouraged to Participate in Online Transportation Planning Meeting

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The public is encouraged to visit www.TalkPATransportation.com to register for an interactive online public meeting being held from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. this Thursday, April 16, as part of the update to the commonwealth’s Twelve Year Transportation Program.

The 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.

During the live Webcast, PennDOT acting Secretary Leslie S. Richards will provide an update on the state’s recently released Transportation Performance Report and the public comment period. Richards and other PennDOT staff will also answer questions submitted before and during the meeting.

Registration is required for the meeting and occurs up to and through the meeting by visiting www.TalkPATransportation.com.

Questions may be submitted in advance to [email protected] and participants may also submit questions during the meeting through the Webcast tool.

Through May 29, the public can also submit feedback at their convenience:

– By emailing [email protected] or calling 717-787-2913 to request a printed survey copy; and
– taking the public survey once it is posted on the website on April 16.

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.
