PennDOT Accepting Applications For 2016-17 Improvements

10/1/2015

PennDOT announced today it will begin accepting applications on October 3, 2015, for funding transportation improvement projects under the Multimodal Transportation Fund.

“The fund allows us to assist communities with needed transportation
improvements that otherwise may not move forward,” said PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards. “This process represents an opportunity for worthwhile local projects to secure the support needed to come to fruition.”

PennDOT will evaluate the applications and make selections based on such
criteria as safety benefits, regional economic conditions, the technical
and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency, and operational
sustainability.

The Multimodal Fund was created by Act 89, enacted in November 2013,
Pennsylvania’s far-reaching transportation funding plan. The fund addresses

road and bridge projects. Also through the fund, transit, aviation, rail
freight and pedestrian and bicycle modes obtained dedicated sources of
funds for the first time, putting the modes on a firmer footing for future
initiatives.

PennDOT has $40 million in grants available for fiscal year 2016-17.
Applications are due by December 18, 2015. PennDOT expects to announce
grant recipients early next year for the funding that becomes available in July
2016.
