In February 2017, PennDOT announced one of its latest planning initiatives: PennDOT Connects. The initiative requires PennDOT project managers to meet with local governments and the Metropolitan Planning Organization (DVRPC) early in the transportation project planning process. PennDOT Connects meeting requirements are being implemented on new projects on the state’s 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Along with these meetings, the new PennDOT Connects Project Initiation Form allows community needs to be documented. The revised process considers local planning studies, comprehensive plans, and other local government input at the onset. In this way, PennDOT can implement projects that not only improve the efficiency of the statewide transportation network but also address local community transportation needs where possible.
