PennDOT not only administers statewide transportation programs, but also aids local governments in a variety of ways.
- Nearly $1 billion allocated to counties and municipalities annually;
- A program to inspect all locally owned bridges over 20 feet every two years;
- Web-based planning tools that local governments can use free of charge in their work serving the public’s transportation needs, such as the Bridge Condition Tool that tracks over 30,000 state and local bridges;
- Training and technical assistance on safety and maintenance issues free of charge to more than 6,000 municipal officials annually through the Local Technical Assistance Program.
