PennDOT Public Comment Period for Transportation and Freight Plans

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to provide comments on the draft 2045 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and Freight Movement Plan (FMP) from September 20 through October 19, 2021.

The LRTP is updated every 6 to 10 years and looks ahead twenty years to establish multimodal strategic directions for Pennsylvania’s transportation system. The FMP proposes strategies, recommends policies, and identifies projects to improve multimodal freight movement. Both plans are in the final stages of a two-year planning process involving technical analysis, public and stakeholder outreach, and collaborative planning. The plans are scheduled for adoption in 2021.

Public and stakeholder involvement is a critical component of the LRTP and FMP development process to better understand the needs and concerns of all Pennsylvanians from across the commonwealth. PennDOT encourages the public to review the draft plans and provide comments beginning on September 20th online by clicking here​ or at public library locations throughout the state. Those without access to the internet may request printed copies at [email protected] or by calling 717-705-1498.

All comments received will be reviewed and taken into consideration by PennDOT for inclusion in the final plans. Anyone who requires special assistance to participate, please contact the PennDOT Bureau of Equal Opportunity at 717-787-5891.
