Pennsylvania State Transportation Commission adopts updated 12-Year Transportation Program clearing way for $84 billion in transportation improvements statewide

On August 17, Pennsylvania's State Transportation Commission (STC) updated the 12-Year Transportation Program (TYP). The new plan anticipates $84 billion will be available over the next 12 years for improvements to roads, bridges, transit systems, airports, and railroads.

The TYP is a multimodal, fiscally-constrained planning tool used to identify and prioritize Pennsylvania's transportation projects and the funds needed to complete them. State law requires the STC to review and update the TYP every two years, and no capital project can move forward unless it is included in the TYP.

The newly adopted program takes effect October 1, 2022, incorporating funding from the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and anticipating the following funding in the first four years of the TYP from federal, state, and local sources:

  • $16 billion for state highway and bridge projects
  • $11.4 billion for public transit
  • $331 million for multimodal projects
  • $232 million for rail freight
  • $168 million for aviation

The TYP also highlights some of PennDOT's major accomplishments over the past two years – from train station modernization to enhanced safety and efficiency. Learn more about the TYP process here, and check out the complete details from the 2023 12-Year Program here.
