June is a big month for PennDOT

July 1, 2010

The state Department of Transportation (PennDOT) ended the state fiscal year with a bang by putting out approximately $426 million in projects in June. 

The department had an aggressive letting output in June by bidding 138 projects totaling just over $426 million during the month of June. To date, the department has let a total of 567 projects worth just over $1.2 billion. Despite the recent rejection of tolls on I-80, PennDOT still anticipates hitting their 2010 letting goal of $1.8 billion meaning they would have approximately $600 million in lettings for the remainder of the calendar year. PennDOT, however, has communicated to the industry that they may exceed $1.8 billion in lettings during the 2010 calendar year. PennDOT’s lettings were $2.8 billion in 2009 due to the billion dollars in economic stimulus funds.  To view the full report and year comparisons, click the link below.

The report lists the total contracts awarded at each letting date, a comparison to the same period in the previous calendar year, and letting adjustments made since the previous month. PHIA staff will track PennDOT lettings throughout the year and provide monthly updates.
