The PEL Study, in support of the Department Pathways Program (Program), is being conducted to identify near and long-term alternative funding solutions and establish a methodology for their evaluation. In February, the Department announced candidate bridge projects being considered as a part of the Major Bridges Public-Private Partnership (P3) initiative. This initiative, the first of the Program, was formed in response to one of the early findings of the PEL Study—that tolling of major bridges in need of replacement or rehabilitation is a potential viable near-term funding solution. The draft PEL Study report is currently available for review and comment and identifies additional medium-term to long-term funding alternatives that could be considered for implementation.
In addition to the telephone town hall event, the Department is hosting an on-demand virtual public meeting for the PEL Study. The virtual public meeting takes place from April 29, 2021, to June 1, 2021, and will be accessible online at all hours of the day at www.penndot.gov/funding. Online comments can be submitted directly from the virtual public meeting web site or by other comment submission methods, including:
• E-mail: [email protected]
• Hotline: (717) 325-6129
The Department encourages everyone to learn more about the draft PEL Study and provide comments by means of the telephone town hall event or virtual public meeting.
