PennDOT looking for input on transportation priorities

May 15, 2014

NEW_PENNDOTThe public is encouraged to participate in PennDOT’s new survey on transportation priorities and investments at as part of PennDOT’s efforts to update Pennsylvania’s Long Range Transportation Plan and develop the first Comprehensive Freight Movement Plan.

The survey, which is open until May 30, has already received more than 2,200 responses and asks respondents to identify their top transportation priorities. These priorities span all assets, ranging from bicycle and pedestrian facilities to freight connections.

Survey participants are also asked to rate various investment scenarios and how these affect their top priorities. Additionally, respondents can identify project needs addressing congestion, bridges, transit and other concerns.

“Collecting the opinions of those who use our transportation system the most is vital to the decision-making process,” said PHIA Managing Director Jason Wagner. “Knowing what the customers want is essential to helping the state make informed decisions regarding long-term transportation funding plans.”

The state Comprehensive Freight Movement Plan was developed at the recommendation of Pennsylvania’s Transportation Funding Advisory Commission. Governor Corbett created the Commission in 2011 to assist in developing innovative solutions to the transportation funding needs in Pennsylvania. The state will finalize its freight and long-range plans this fall after the end of a public comment period.
