PennDOT November Lettings: $106 million

November 26, 2013

NEW_PENNDOTThe Pennsylvania State Department of Transportation (PennDOT) conducted a small letting in November with $105.9 million in projects during the month.  This brings the year-to-date total to $1.571 billion.  However, PennDOT is on pace to hit its initial 2013 letting program forecast which was $1.7 billion with another month to go.  To put in perspective, PennDOT finished the 2012 calendar year with $1.973 billion.

The news, however, is positive with the PA General Assembly’s enactment of a comprehensive transportation funding bill now set to become law.  At the recent APC/PennDOT Fall Seminar, Deputy Secretary Scott Christie announced the Department’s 2014 letting target at a minimum of $1.5 billion.  Christie said that because the bill passed less than 24 hours before his presentation, the Department would be evaluating to what level they will increase the lettings in 2014.  It is expected that the 2014 lettings will hit close to $2 billion.  To view Dep. Sec. Christie’s presentation, click HERE.
