HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is getting ready to conduct its first-ever statewide transportation meeting, and they are inviting all residents of the Commonwealth to take part.

The online meeting is being held tonight from 6 to 7pm.

Representatives of Penndot and other Pennsylvania transportation officials will be talking about the state’s 12-year transportation program, letting members of the public ask questions and bring up concerns.

Penndot spokeswoman Erin Waters-Trasatt says the idea isn’t new — just the method.

“Traditionally we had held regional public meetings,” she says.  “They weren’t always convenient for people’s schedules.  And this is a way that people can participate from their own homes.”

Waters-Trasatt says officials are expecting questions on a wide variety of topics:

“We anticipate that on this scale, people will ask more questions about, maybe, our priorities, or questions about highway safety or funding, because that’s a large topic right now.”
