Pennsylvania’s motorists can now access real-time information on transportation projects that have been completed or scheduled through 2026 at a new website developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), according to Senate Transportation Committee Chair John Rafferty (R-44).
Rafferty led efforts to pass Act 89, which is providing critical investments in Pennsylvania’s transportation system. The comprehensive funding legislation enables the state to address structurally-deficient bridges, poorly-rated roads and underfunded multimodal projects. Rafferty also led efforts to pass Act 88, which created Public-Private Partnerships and enables transportation entities to advance projects with innovative financing measures.
The new PennDOT website, www.Projects.PennDOT.gov, includes interactive maps and explanations of these improvements, including:
- construction projects that are underway or will begin this year;
- road and bridge projects that are completed, underway or scheduled because of Act 89’s historic investment;
- bridge projects that are being advanced because of Act 88; and
- other planned projects in PennDOT’s Four- and Twelve-Year Plans.
“Thanks to the leadership at PennDOT, the transparency of our transportation projects is readily available to Pennsylvanians across the state who can easily monitor the implementation of rebuilding the Commonwealth’s transportation system,” Rafferty said. “Our comprehensive transportation funding plan is a model for other states and a strategic investment to create jobs, promote economic development and improve public safety.”
The website allows users to view projects according to categories such as county, statewide, legislative district and more. The construction section also allows users to better understand the estimated start and end dates of projects as well as to view projects of regional significance along Pennsylvania’s interstate system.
