PennDOT District 11 highlights 75 projects worth over $320 million this year as 2021 construction season comes to a close

While major construction along the Route 28 and I-79 corridors receive a lot of attention, District 11 has been very successful at addressing smaller, impactful projects that affect our local communities according to District 11 Executive Cheryl Moon-Sirianni.


Some projects will continue through the winter with work that is critical to maintaining the most basic needs of our transportation system, such as roadway patching, landslide repairs, and preparatory work for the 2022 season according to Assistant District Executive for Construction Jason Zang.
