Shuster to Keystone Transportation Coalition Members: “You Wrote the Playbook”
Yesterday, a group of Keystone TransportationFunding Coalition members traveled to Washington to meet with Pennsylvania's congressional delegation. We discussed the importance of transportation funding, and explained how we in Pennsylvania managed to advance such an initiative at the state level. In meeting with Congressmen Shuster, Meehan, Thompson, Marino, and Dent, KTFC members urged the delegation to continue the strong federal program and pass a timely Reauthorization of MAP-21. Key transportation staff from other members’ offices also attended session. Dave Bauer, ARTBA’s Vice President of Government Affairs also briefed the group.

APC NEWS & UPDATES
PennDOT has informed APC that they intend to move to a weekly letting schedule starting in April which may continue into May. A letting for Thursday, April 3 was already added to the schedule. This decision was made by the department to spread out the growing number of projects being advertised over the course of April and possibly May as a result of the recent transportation funding bill, Act. 89. In moving to weekly lettings, APC has asked the department to be sure to spread the projects out on a statewide basis so that each letting date has a good cross-section of projects from around the Commonwealth. PennDOT has only communicated to APC that a weekly letting schedule will occur in April and possibly May. No plans to continue beyond May have been made at this time.
Pennsylvania’s successful transportation funding initiative was helped greatly by the existence of the Keystone Transportation Funding Coalition, a loose consortium of organizations whose constituents were interested in addressing the funding issue. It included business, labor, agriculture, bicycle and walking enthusiasts, health and fitness organizations, the trucking industry, AARP, AAA, local governments, etc., in addition to highway builders and public transportation agencies.
