PennDOT Seeks Input On Draft Long Range Transportation Plan


PennDOT has issued its draft Long Range Transportation Plan for the next 12 years and is inviting citizens to comment on the plan up until Dec. 15.

The plan, with goals, and recommendations, is here:

“Our Long Range Transportation Plan provides a vision for Pennsylvania’s future by focusing on system preservation, safety, stewardship and personal and freight mobility,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “I encourage the public to join us in establishing these goals because our transportation network impacts all of us for generations to come.”

More than 2,500 people took a survey this spring identifying their top transportation priorities. That feedback, which identified bike and pedestrian facilities, public transportation, new roads or widening and pavement condition as the top public priorities, supplemented PennDOT research to contribute to the draft report.
