PennDOT Seeks Input on Long Range Plan

FROM PennDOT”

“As we strive to maintain our roads and bridges, PennDOT has embarked upon a challenging journey to develop strategies and priorities to guide decision makers now and in the years ahead. This is not a journey we can take alone. It will require significant input from a wide variety of partners, as well as from members of the public. PA On Track will serve as a gateway to your participation along this journey.

With your help, by the end of 2014 PennDOT will have two important plans in place to guide them into the future. The first will produce our long range transportation plan to preserve and improve accessibility and connectivity for all modes. The second is the state’s first ever comprehensive freight movement plan, which will reflect and strengthen the importance of integrating the various modes. This plan will further define how to efficiently move freight, while fostering the state’s economy and generating future growth.

This website will be updated regularly to keep you informed of our progress and to provide opportunities for participation in a variety of ways.”
