PennDOT Invites Public to Comment on 2045 Freight Movement Plan

September 21, 2022 12:17 PM | Brandon Moree (Administrator)

Harrisburg, PA The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to review and offer comments on a revised draft of the agency’s 2045 Freight Movement Plan (FMP) during a 15-day public comment period from September 21 through October 5, 2022.

“The Freight Movement Plan underscores our ongoing commitment to freight planning statewide,” PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian said. “Through our planning efforts, we want to ensure that the Department is properly positioned not only to accommodate the demands of freight transportation, but to help facilitate it.”

The FMP provides information on PennDOT’s efforts to continually improve the safe and efficient movement of freight statewide. Having an approved and up-to-date freight plan helps ensure Pennsylvania remains eligible for federal funding under the National Highway Freight Program (NHFP). This federal program will add an average of $58.5 million annually to the state’s program

The plan is available on PennDOT’s website, and an electronic comment form is available.

Through collaboration with freight stakeholders, PennDOT developed the plan over a two-year period. The plan addresses all state and federal provisions for freight planning, including those from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which was signed into law by President Biden November 2021.

The plan is an update to Pennsylvania’s current freight plan, PA On Track, which the Federal Highway Administration approved in November 2017.
