​In mid-April, PennDOT hosted a live Online Public Forum for the update of the 12-Year Program (TYP).

The forum, held on Wednesday, April 12, featured a presentation from PennDOT leadership and members of the State Transportation Commission (STC) and an hour-long Q&A session. More than 150 viewers participated in the forum via PACast and Facebook Live. Question topics ranged from funding and multimodal transportation, to freight movement and traffic calming.

A recorded video of the forum is available for streaming and download at PACast.com including American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.

Every two years, the STC and PennDOT update Pennsylvania's 12-Year Program (TYP), and public feedback is a critical part of that process. The public comment period for the TYP update began on Wednesday, March 1, and continues through Sunday, April 30. General feedback and survey results will help identify needs and prioritize transportation projects across the state.

As of April 17, PennDOT has received 9,621 survey responses, and achieved 96% of its 10,000 response goal.

If you missed the forum or have questions following the event, please send questions to RA-PennDOTSTC@pa.gov. The public may also call PennDOT and share their questions at 717-783-2262.
