PennDOT Secretary Says Weight Limits Coming to PA Bridges
Governor Corbett's top transportation adviser is warning about 1,000 bridges in Pennsylvania will be slapped with additional weight restrictions in the coming months as a consequence of declining funding for repairs.
Transportation Secretary Barry Schoch has told the Senate Transportation Committee the policy is particularly necessary given the Legislature's failure to approve higher gas taxes and motorist fees since the 1990s.
Schoch says rising state police costs and stronger fuel efficiency standards are hurting revenue from motor vehicles. He says new weight restrictions will begin next month and potentially mean longer routes and commutes for haulers, school buses and emergency vehicles.
The Transportation Department says more than 2,200 state- and locally-owned bridges out of about 31,000 total are already weight restricted.
