PennDOT finishes 2015 with just under $2.6 billion in lettings

January 6, 2016

NEW_PENNDOTPennDOT finished the 2015 calendar year with just shy of it’s projected $2.6 billion in contract lettings.  The official year-end total was $2.594 billion.  In 2014, PennDOT ended the year with $2.575 billion in lettings, the highest since 2009 when the program was boosted by the one-time economic stimulus package. PennDOT exceeded its initial 2014 estimate of $2.2 billion and it was reported earlier that PennDOT’s 2015 anticipated lettings will again be close to $2.6 billion.

PennDOT recently reported at the annual meeting of the Associated Pennsylvania Constructors (APC) that 2016 lettings are expected to be $2.4 billion.

With the recent enactment of the transportation funding bill there is reason to see this trend continue well past 2015. 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.
