PennDOT maintenance crews are tasked with taking care of our state highways. But one crew's biggest achievement may have been saving a life.
Winter Storm Jonas was a catalyst to look for ways to serve motorists even in the most extreme situations.
Keeping our roads safe takes a team effort — with Pennsylvania’s many emergency personnel sometimes being the unsung heroes of the lineup.
Did you know PennDOT is directly responsible for nearly 40,000 miles of highway and roughly 25,000 bridges? We oversee programs and policies affecting highways, urban and rural public transportation, airports, railroads, ports and waterways, in addition to administering the state's more than 11 million vehicle registrations and 8.8 million driver's licenses.
So, how do we do what we do? And how can we help you travel in Pennsylvania — whether it be for business or leisure — in safe and enjoyable manner? Read PennDOT Way to learn more about the department, what we do, and how and why we do it.
