​The onset of COVID-19 has meant some degree of change in all Pennsylvanians’ lives, and it’s no different for businesses and agencies like PennDOT. While we’re providing many critical services and performing essential operations in different ways, you may have questions on what actions we’ve taken and how they may affect you. We’ve compiled resources for you to answer some of these questions, and we’re also sharing stories from the front lines of our operations during this unusual time.

You can find a comprehensive summary of changes and actions to date on our COVID-19 page here. Whether you’re a commercial driver, have questions about construction projects, or need a summary, you’ll find it there. The page also provides access to this COVID-19 blog series where we’re sharing stories of personal generosity, how we’re innovating operations, and how routine business is continuing in non-routine times.
Another feature you’ll find on the blog is information on our new Educational Resources page. With many children at home for an extended time, we’re offering many artistic, educational and STEM-related resources. And if you’re an adult who likes coloring, crosswords and projects, this is for you too!
Additionally, we know that a picture can say a thousand words, right? The COVID-19 media center includes images answering our most common frequently asked questions on everything from license expirations to how we’re handling road repairs. Whether you’re a customer looking for these answers or you’re a business or elected official with interested stakeholders, we encourage you to freely share this information!
We look forward to more “normal” days in the future, but in the meantime we hope these resources help you navigate or answer PennDOT-related questions during this pandemic.
