Last month, 156 of Pennsylvania’s Senate and House members voted YES for a comprehensive transportation funding solution to improve safety and mobility in our region and in the Commonwealth.

Action on a new Pennsylvania transportation investment strategy was a top priority for employers, workers and commuters throughout the southeast region. Potential transit service reductions, weight restrictions on area bridges, deteriorating road conditions and increased congestion were threatening our region’s mobility and economic competitiveness.

Now, through the leadership and hard work of a bipartisan group of lawmakers, Pennsylvania will invest $2.4 billion in our transportation infrastructure to repair and improve our highways, bridges, transit systems, rails, trails, ports and airports.

This investment will ensure a safe and efficient transportation network that will help to reduce travel time and increase reliability, and to lower costs for commuters and lead to greater economic productivity for businesses.

A strong transportation system is the lifeblood of a robust economy. Investment in our infrastructure will create jobs, accelerate economic growth and enhance the competitiveness of the Greater Philadelphia region.
