Public Participation

Abington Township Park Walking Bridge

The Public Participation Plan (PPP) for Pennsylvania’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) Update and inaugural Comprehensive Freight Movement Plan (CFMP) is designed to engage a broad array of project stakeholders throughout the PA On Track transportation planning process. The engagement process: (1) provides opportunities for public review and comment at key decision points, with adequate public notice and access to underlying technical and policy information; and (2) provides timely information about transportation issues and decision-making processes to citizens, affected public agencies, and stakeholders.

The PA On Track’s public participation process will use four primary methods:

  1. PA On Track Advisory Committees – Four ad-hoc project advisory committees will provide a hierarchical approach regarding policy and technical decisions and actions. These include: an Executive Committee, Management Committee, Technical Advisory Committee; and Freight Advisory Committee.

  2. Stakeholder Webinars – The PA On Track project team will conduct eight stakeholder webinars throughout the 20-month LRTP and CFMP planning process. The webinars are designed to provide frequent opportunities for stakeholders to directly engage the project team through interactive and meaningful dialogue regarding LRTP and CFMP goals, objectives, performance measures, modal needs, alternative investment scenarios, finance and revenue, and project prioritization. Please visit the Stakeholder Webinars section of the PA On Track website for more information about the webinars and details regarding future webinar dates, discussion topics, registration information, and opportunities to provide your input into the development of the LRTP and CFMP. Your involvement matters, so please be sure to Join our Email List to receive invitations to future webinars.
