Through PennDOT Connects, the state Department of Transportation and its regional planning partners are involving local government in project planning and providing resources to help municipalities address local transportation issues and goals.
The PennDOT Connects website is the primary source for resources and information about the PennDOT Connects Municipal Support Program. From the website, you can request technical assistance and onsite training, as well as view online training modules and quarterly newsletters. Requests can also be submitted by phone at (717) 710-2090 or emailed to PAConnects@pa.gov. All resources provided by the PennDOT Connects Municipal Support Program are free to municipalities.
Technical assistance is offered to answer questions, guide municipalities in best practices, and work with an expert on a specific transportation planning need. Be sure to include a brief description of your local issue and the desired level of assistance (phone, email, or site visit/training support) in your request. Requests are reviewed and assigned to technical experts to provide timely feedback for meaningful support and recommendations.
