Over the next few years, historic investments in Pennsylvania’s roads, bridges, and public transit
systems—including $21 billion in planned state expenditures and $16 billion in federal funding—will
improve Pennsylvania’s competitiveness and grow the economy (PennDOT, 2021; White House Fact
Sheet, 2021). However, the economic, training, and fiscal benefits of these improvements will only be
maximized if the projects are built using skilled local workers.
