PennDOT’s 2014 contract lettings eclipse $2 billion mark

September 26, 2014

NEW_PENNDOTAct 89 continues to push construction lettings to significantly higher levels compared to last year.  PennDOT had another strong month with over $200 million in projects being put out on the street during the month of September.  This now brings the year-to-date total to over $2.1 billion.  At this same point in 2013, PennDOT only bid $1.209 billion in lettings.  At this pace, PennDOT would end 2014 well over its initial $2.2 billion estimate.

With the recent enactment of the transportation funding bill there is reason to see this trend continue in 2015. Act 89, which will implement a $2.3 billion comprehensive transportation funding plan over the next five years, will result in PennDOT exceeding $2 billion in construction lettings in 2015. PennDOT finished 2013 with $1.6 billion in lettings.

As in year’s past, PHIA will continue to track contract lettings on a monthly basis.
