Roads & Bridges;Nov2010, Vol. 48 Issue 11, p6
The author argues against the actions taken by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to defend Act 44, which required Turnpike to fork over 922 million U.S. dollars annually for transportation projects starting in 2010. He cites the effort launched by Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell after the rejection of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to deal with transportation projects and the tolling of I-80. He also reflects on what Pennsylvania lawmakers need to do in order to deal with the issues regarding their transportation.
