A Fix-It-First policy for PennDOT

Our state highway system is a mess, and represents an enormous mountain of liabilities into the indefinite future. The Legislature should mandate that PennDOT bring our existing roads and bridges to a state of good repair BEFORE adding a single lane-mile of new capacity.

    In most of the state a fit-it-first policy would work but in more populated areas like Pittsburgh or Philadelphia capacity design is how you can build in multi modal transportation. Capacity doesn’t always mean make it bigger for move volume it can mean reduce the size to meet capacity or slow capacity- road diet etc. If you are only repairing what you have you can lose opportunity to make good changes.
