HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The public is invited to comment on the state's draft, Long Range Transportation Plan, which will help guide future 12-Year Programs and regional plans, by visiting www.PAOnTrack.com.
"Our Long Range Transportation Plan provides a vision for Pennsylvania's future by focusing on system preservation, safety, stewardship and personal and freight mobility," PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. "I encourage the public to join us in establishing these goals because our transportation network impacts all of us for generations to come."
The draft plan, which includes goals, objectives and recommendations based on department research and public input, is viewable by clicking "Draft Long Range Plan" on the homepage. Comments can be submitted through the "Comment Here" section under "Public Participation."
The public comments contributing to the plan were collected from more than 2,500 people who took a survey this spring identifying their top transportation priorities and appeal of various investment scenarios. That feedback, which identified bike and pedestrian facilities, public transportation, new roads or widening and pavement condition as the top public priorities, supplemented PennDOT research to contribute to the draft report.
Feedback will be accepted through Monday, Dec. 15. In addition to online feedback, comments will be accepted by emailing [email protected] or by mail to PennDOT's Center for Program Development and Management, c/o Statewide Long-Range Planning, P.O. Box 3365, Harrisburg, PA, 17105-3365.
