We will find out early this afternoon how some of your tax dollars will be spent to improve area roads. PennDOT District 1 Executive William G. Petit and regional planning partners will meet with us to discuss road and bridge improvement projects coming this year.
The projects include those made possible by the state's new transportation plan that Governor Tom Corbett signed into law in November 2013.
PennDOT will invest $104 million in the six-county region of District 1 this year alone. This investment includes an additional 20 projects that would not have been funded if not for the transportation plan.
