PennDOT lets over $1.4 billion in projects in first 6 months of 2014

June 30, 2014

NEW_PENNDOTAct 89 continues to push construction lettings to significantly higher levels thus far in 2014. PennDOT had another strong month in June with over $510 million in projects being put out on the street. This brings the year-to-date total to over $1.4 billion. At this same point in 2013, PennDOT only bid $724.4 million in lettings. At this pace, PennDOT would end 2014 with over $2 billion in lettings.

With the recent enactment of the transportation funding bill there is reason to see this trend continue. Act 89, which will implement a $2.3 billion comprehensive transportation funding plan over the next five years, will result in PennDOT coming close to $2 billion in construction lettings in 2014. PennDOT finished 2013 with $1.6 billion in lettings. Read more
