Decade of Investment


Pennsylvania is home to the nation’s fifth-largest state-maintained roadway network, the fourth-highest number of interstate miles and has the sixth-highest number of registered vehicles. Transportation is the backbone of our economy and investing in this vast system is essential to safely moving goods and people through our state.


Following decades of underinvestment in our infrastructure, Governor Tom Corbett has proposed a plan that would inject nearly $2 billion of additional funding into Pennsylvania’s transportation system. The plan would sustainably increase public safety, drive commerce and create jobs while ensuring reliable funding without leaving the bill to future generations.


Designed to move Pennsylvania’s transportation infrastructure ahead, this plan is built on four core principles:


• The plan follows the recommendations outlined by Governor Corbett’s Transportation Funding Advisory Commission (TFAC).

• The plan focuses on modernizing PennDOT and other transportation entities to ensure that every available user fee penny is spent appropriately and efficiently.

• The plan ensures that the funding solution is a long-term solution.

• The plan includes the recommended and necessary legislation and regulatory changes to complement restructuring.





Bridges with New Weight Restrictions


These maps show state and local bridges that recently have been or will be posted with new weight restrictions in Lehigh County and Northampton County. These new bridge restrictions are intended to slow down the deterioration process and preserve safety while funding for their repairs remains uncertain.
