The 2013 passage of major transportation funding legislation in Pennsylvania marked a watershed moment for infrastructure in the Commonwealth. The tireless efforts of a broad statewide coalition of transportation experts and advocates, including many organizations and individuals involved in the World Class initiative, were critical to the creation of the state’s Act 89.
The Act provides unprecedented levels of dedicated funding for deteriorating transit systems, roads and bridges. With funding now in hand, leaders are focused on making the most of these new resources.
