The grant alert will be posted to the PennDOT IIJA website in the coming weeks.  The goals of the Program are to reduce highway congestion, reduce economic and environmental costs associated with that congestion, including transportation emissions, and optimize existing highway capacity and usage of highway and transit systems through:

(1) improving intermodal integration with highways, highway operations, and highway performance;
(2) reducing or shifting highway users to off- peak travel times or to nonhighway travel modes during peak travel times; and
(3) pricing of, or based on, as applicable,

  • parking;
  • use of roadways, including in designated geographic zones; or
  • congestion.
