PennDOT Introduces "E-PennDOT Digest"

Electronic newsletter will highlight key initiatives, feature unique programs

The public is now able to learn more about the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's diverse programs and services through a new electronic newsletter, E-PennDOT Digest.

"This newsletter will help the public to understand that Penn- DOT's scope is much broader than the yellow trucks you see on the roads," said PennDOT Secretary Allen D. Biehler, P.E. "While maintaining highways and bridges is a major component of our work, we also have many other programs that are vital to Pennsylvanians."

E-PennDOT Digest is a quarterly online newsletter that provides updates on key initiatives, such as the Accelerated Bridge Program and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Unique projects and partnerships from across the state are highlighted, as well as news related to public transportation, aviation and rail freight. Employee features are also included, detailing how PennDOT employees go the extra mile to serve taxpayers.

The newsletter is available by clicking on E-PennDOT Digest under the "News & Media" link on PennDOT's Web site: www.dot.state.pa.us. Visitors to the site also have the option of subscribing to the newsletter by providing a current e-mail address.

Suggestions for future articles or comments related to E-PennDOT Digest can be e-mailed to RA-penndotpress@state.pa.us.
