PennDOT starts 2012 with $53 million in lettings

February 8, 2012

The state Department of Transportation (PennDOT) bid just over $53.5 million in projects in January to start the new year. 

PennDOT made a 2012 construction year forecast at $1.5 billion due to a decrease in state funding and stagnant federal funding.  For perspective, a $1.5 billion letting program was the same volume as in 2006.  For more information regarding the department’s forecast you can view Dep. Secretary Scott Christie’s presentation at the annual APC Fall Seminar by going here.  In 2011, PennDOT ended the year with $1.8 billion in lettings.

It is important to note that just a few years ago, PennDOT’s 2009 lettings were $2.8 billion due to the billion dollars in economic stimulus funds, which have been completely spent.
