PennDOT invites residents to share feedback on winter services

Statewide online survey available until April 29


HARRISBURG » The Pennsylvan­ia Department of Transporta­tion is seeking the public’s feedback on winter services through an online survey.

“Winter operations are among our core services and our team takes pride in their mission,” said PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian. “Through this survey, the public can help us measure expectatio­ns and identify education opportunit­ies.”

The survey is available through April 29 and should take about five minutes to complete. All responses are completely anonymous.

The 17-question survey asks respondent­s about their timeline expectatio­ns for safe and passable roadways, how they rank snowremova­l priorities, and how they rate PennDOT’s winter services.

Respondent­s are also asked how they receive PennDOT roadway informatio­n, and whether or how they use the state’s 511PA traveler informatio­n services. During the winter, offers its standard traffic and incident informatio­n while adding PennDOT plow-truck locations, winter roadway conditions, and other services.

At any time, motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed informatio­n, and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone applicatio­n for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-11, or by following regional Twitter alerts.
