PennDOT Connects: Aligning Transportation Planning with Land Uses and Community Vision
State Department of Transportation’s are no longer just held accountable for the transportation system; they are also held accountable for how the system supports and improves quality of life for communities.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is committed to enhancing community collaboration in our planning process through “PennDOT Connects”. The PennDOT Connects initiative reaches into community and transportation planning processes to initiate early dialogue and partnered decision-making about the kinds of transportation projects that will help a community achieve its vision.
This webinar will provide an overview of PennDOT Connects as well as the outcomes from the process in southwest Pennsylvania.
In addition, there will be discussion of other Metropolitan Planning Organizations working with PennDOT with regard to transportation planning and how communities are connecting transportation improvements with other modes of non-automobile transportation and community impacts.
Approved for 1.25 CM credit
