Pennsylvanians are being asked to share their ideas on highway planning during a series of public hearings to update the state’s 12-year transportation program. The plan is updated every two years and is a “blueprint” of prioritized transportation projects.
PennDOT wants to hear what members of the public, local governments and county governments see as the top needs for transportation in their areas of the state. PennDOT is required by law to conduct the biennial process.
The hearings will be held August 11th in Altoona, August 25th in the Pittsburgh area, August 26th in Gettysburg, September 15th in Shawnee on Delaware, and September 16th in Philadelphia. Pre-registration is required for those who want to speak at a hearing. People can learn more about the hearings at PennDOT’s website.
