Shapiro Administration Highlights 77 Miles Paved and 47 Bridges Repaired or Replaced in PennDOT District 2 Region During 2023 Construction Season


Clearfield, PA – Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) District 2 Executive Tom Prestash, P.E., offered an update on statewide transportation progress and highlighted this year's active and completed projects in Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Juniata, McKean, Mifflin, and Potter counties. 

There were approximately 77 roadway miles paved and 47 bridges rehabilitated, repaired, or replaced by PennDOT and private-industry teams during the 2023 construction season in the nine-county PennDOT region. Additionally, nearly 450 miles were seal coated to preserve roadway surfaces and nearly 8,366 line miles were painted.

"Our highway infrastructure connects communities, creates jobs, enhances safety for the traveling public, and is pivotal to the overall economic health of Pennsylvania," said Prestash. "The Shapiro Administration's commitment to investing in that infrastructure has allowed PennDOT to improve thousands of roadway miles and hundreds of bridges this year alone, and its continued investment will benefit the citizens of this Commonwealth for years to come."

Statewide from January through October, 5,567 roadway miles were improved, including 1,690 miles of paving. In the same timeframe, 545 state and locally owned bridges were put out for bid to be repaired, replaced, or preserved by PennDOT or industry forces. Additionally, 392 construction contracts for highway, bridge, and other improvement projects were completed statewide through PennDOT's private-sector partners so far this year.
