DOT Honors PennDOT in the First Highway Innovative Showcase

The agency has been recognized for using technology that will reduce fatalities and accelerate projects.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has recognized the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) for using state-of-the-art technologies on its highway projects.

"For many years, Pennsylvania has inspired other states with their transportation innovations," said U.S. Deputy Transportation Secretary Victor Mendez. "The PennDOT team is saving lives, saving time, and saving money on roads throughout the state, and motivating other states to do the same."

Some of the innovations used, such as the "Safety Edge," were part of FHWA's "Every Day Counts" (EDC) initiative that was made a permanent part of the federal-aid high way program in the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act. The "Safety Edge" is a paving technique that bevels the edge of roads and highways, making vehicles less susceptible to road-departure crashes.

PennDOT also utilized high-friction surface treatments and warm mix asphalt to drive fatalities down and create safer work environments for construction crews, and it has used accelerated bridge construction techniques that result in fewer traffic delays.
