State Transportation Innovation Council

The Pennsylvania State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) facilitates the rapid implementation of proven, well-researched and documented state, regional, national and international technologies, tactics, techniques and any other innovations that are new to Pennsylvania. The STIC also supports the implementation of the Federal Highway Administration's Every Day Counts (EDC) Initiatives.

The STIC accepts innovation submissions from many sources — STIC members, transportation stakeholders and partners and PennDOT employees. Selected innovations are developed for deployment and promoted to become standard practice within the transportation community.

Hot Pour Mastics being applied to road

Hot Pour Mastics provides a stable, flexible repair that bonds firmly with existing pavements. HPM can be used year-round as a one-time application for large cracks and small potholes on concrete and asphalt pavements when surface temperatures are 40 degrees Fahrenheit and rising.

water flowing through pavement

Pervious Pavement allows water to pass through the pavement to reduce surface runoff and recharge groundwater sources.

A Sequential Dynamic Lighting Curve Warning System alerts motorists to slow down when approaching a sharp curve and helps them safely navigate through it. Use of these systems can prevent or reduce the severity of run-off-the-road crashes.
