Other Plans and Studies


2022 PA Aviation System Strategic Investment Plan  

The PA Aviation Strategic Investment Plan contains two major parts. Part 1 identifies specific measures to close the PA aviation funding gap currently estimated at approximately $ 53 million annually. Part 2 identifies eight strategic areas to leverage the aviation investment consisting of aviation workforce retention and recruitment, economic development, interface of airports and communities, air freight, commercial air service, emerging aviation technologies, aviation industry partnership building and legislation/policy. Numerous recommendations are formulated for action by the aviation industry working with its partners and stakeholders.

2021 Transportation Impact Fees Study

The study delineates the structural problems that presently exist statewide in how land use planning and transportation planning are being administered. The study documents the statutory authority municipalities have for managing land use at the local level through the state’s enabling legislation (the Municipalities Planning Code, or MPC). It also documents present-day challenges in the local decision-making process, including, but not limited to: the provisions of Act 209 (Pennsylvania’s Impact Fee), their complications, and how impact fees interact with developer improvement required by the Highway Occupancy Permit (HOP) process and complement the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Other topics include issues such as: barriers to creating and administering Official Maps; the HOP process; and needed amendments to the state Municipalities Planning Code (MPC).

2021 Local Small Bridge Study

In 2020, the Transportation Advisory Committee commissioned this study to review the condition of local small bridges located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Local small bridges are defined as a bridge, culvert, or pipe(s) between 8 and 20 feet in length and are owned at the local level by counties and municipalities. Based on a 2011-2012 statewide inventory by PennDOT, there are an estimated 7,000 small bridges owned by local governments. With a lack of any state or federal mandate that requires municipalities to conduct routine inventory and inspection, local governments are not required to plan for and fund the long-term capital needs of the local bridge inventory. By understanding local perspectives and needs, the study offers recommendations for how PennDOT can help create increased capacity and incentives to create uniformity in local small bridge asset management.

Coordinated Public Transit - Human Services Transportation Plan

Federal law requires that projects selected for funding under the Enhanced Mobility for Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310) Program be "included in a locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan," and that the plan be "developed and approved through a process that included participation by seniors, individuals with disabilities, representatives of public, private, and nonprofit transportation and human services providers and other members of the public" utilizing transportation services. These coordinated plans identify the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes, provide strategies for meeting these needs, and prioritize transportation services for funding and implementation. The current Coordinated Transit Plan for the WATS MPO was developed in partnership with the SEDA-COG MPO and adopted at the November 18, 2019 WATS MPO Coordinating Committee meeting.
