​With construction and maintenance work underway across Pennsylvania, we recently outlined 2022 plans in each of PennDOT's 11 engineering districts. Each region's benefits from the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) were also highlighted.

The BIL will provide at least $608.5 million in additional investment this year, supporting and accelerating many projects. The department anticipates putting out contracts for $2.5 billion in work this year, complementing work completed every day by department crews.

Following are the announcements of investments, BIL impacts, and key ongoing and anticipated projects across our regions. To keep your finger on the pulse of PennDOT news near you, subscribe to news from the applicable region.

In 2022 alone the BIL is bringing nearly $20.5 million in additional funding for projects in PennDOT's northwest region. The funds will be used by the department and its planning partners.

The BIL means more money for the local transportation system too.

This increases PennDOT's District 1 annual investment in local bridges to $5.4 million through 2026.
