Planning

Managing Pennsylvania's highway and bridge system, along with aviation, bicycle, pedestrian, and other facilities in our state is a large, cooperative effort. PennDOT, with federal and local partners, provides programs, tools and resources to look at how projects in the near term as well as the future meet financial realities and customer needs.

PennDOT staff are actively involved in not only facilitating and making improvements to our transportation system, but also in planning them in the near and long term. These staff are a liaison for Metropolitan and Rural Planning Organizations, the State Transportation Commission, and the Transportation Advisory Committee, as well as Transportation Management Associations, the public, and other stakeholders.

The products of this collaboration at a high level are the state's Transportation Improvement Program and Twelve Year Program, which include projects that you can see on our PennDOT Projects website.
