Deteriorating roads and bridges are putting the public in danger, wasting time and money with detours and delays, and eroding the commonwealth's ability to attract and retain businesses.
Pennsylvania's legislature has reached a critical intersection: Pass this road and bridge funding now or wait another couple of years and see our infrastructure deteriorate even more, requiring even greater amounts of money to fix it.
We call on our state legislators to do the right thing. Don't stall out at this intersection. Move forward and pass comprehensive transportation funding now!
