PennDOT begins 2011 with $66 million in lettings

January 31, 2011

The state Department of Transportation (PennDOT) bid out just over $66.5million in projects in January to begin the 2011 construction year.  PennDOT finished the 2010 calendar year with approximately $2.1 billion in lettings but has forecast that 2011 will only see $1.7 billion, which was the level of the program back in 2006-07.  The department said this decrease is largely due to the expiration of the federal Economic Stimulus payments as well as a decrease in state funding and stagnet federal funding.  To put into perspective, PennDOT’s lettings were $2.8 billion in 2009 due to the billion dollars in economic stimulus funds.
