PennDOT lets $98 million in projects

The state Department of Transportation (PennDOT) bid just over $98 million in projects in November bringing the year-to-date total to $1.549 billion. At this same time last year, PennDOT had let $1.78 billion.

PennDOT finished the 2010 calendar year with approximately $2.2 billion in lettings. PennDOT initially forecasted the 2011 year to see $1.7 billion in lettings, which was the level of the program back in 2006-07. PennDOT made a 2012 construction year forecast at $1.5 billion due to the expiration of the federal Economic Stimulus payments as well as a decrease in state funding and stagnant federal funding. For more information regarding the department’s forecast you can view Dep. Secretary Scott Christie’s presentation at the annual APC Fall Seminar by going here. To put into perspective, PennDOT’s lettings were $2.8 billion in 2009 due to the billion dollars in economic stimulus funds.
