Late last week Governor Tom Wolf officially issued a disaster proclamation following heavy rains and flooding throughout Pennsylvania. This declaration applies statewide in all 67 counties. APC reported last week that it joined with PAPA asking PennDOT and the Pa Turnpike Commission to reconsider their policy on extreme weather and potential schedule adjustments. The Governor’s recent proclamation now establishes an opportunity for the industry to seek relief with PennDOT on project delays due to weather impacts. We have been informed by PennDOT that the districts will now review time extension requests on a project by project basis.
