PennDOT lets over $218 million on projects during May

June 2, 2016

NEW_PENNDOTPennDOT let over $218 million projects during the month of May. With this letting, PennDOT has bid a total of $1 billion in 2016 to date. At this same point last year, PennDOT bid a total of $1.196 billion. The official 2015 year-end total was $2.594 billion just shy of PennDOT’s $2.6 billion forecast. PennDOT reported at the annual meeting of the Associated Pennsylvania Constructors (APC) that 2016 lettings are expected to be $2.4 billion.

With the 2013 enactment of the transportation funding bill (Act 89) there is reason to see increased lettings. Act 89, which will implement a $2.3 billion comprehensive transportation funding plan over the next five years, will result in PennDOT exceeding the $2 billion construction lettings mark for years to come.

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