Reminder: Townships Urged to Tell PennDOT How to Spend Transportation Funds
The State Transportation Commission (STC) and the state Department of Transportation are conducting a survey to gather feedback on Pennsylvania’s transportation system as part of the 12-Year Transportation Program update. If you have not yet done so and want to tell PennDOT how to spend its funds, click here to take the survey by April 30!
Township officials and their residents are encouraged to participate in the survey and help identify whether state and federal funds should be spent on traditional road and bridge projects or alternative networks like mass transit, trails (bike-ped), aviation and ports; or a combination. Participants will identify how they travel throughout the commonwealth (by car, mass transit, bike, etc.). More important, participants can identify a transportation problem at a specific location and describe that issue to encourage PennDOT to address it. Finally, participants determine how to spend a mythical $100 across six transportation categories.
Township officials may also participate in an Online Public Forum on the survey scheduled for April 12 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. To participate in the Online Public Forum, contact PennDOT’s Program Center by email at RA-PennDOTSTC@pa.gov or phone at (717) 783-2262. Click here for more on the forum.
