(Harrisburg) -- PennDOT is soliciting Pennsylvanians' input as it works to update the state's 12 Year Transportation Program.

Gone are the days of written testimony and driving to public meetings. PennDOT has developed an interactive online survey, and will be hosting its inaugural webcast public meeting this evening.

Spokeswoman Erin Waters-Trasatt says the agency wants to better understand what the public wants.

"So any feedback that we receive is invaluable as that's added to all the data that we have and the information that we're building our transportation program from," she explains.

The 12 Year Transportation Program gets updated every two years.

Transportation funding is expected to be one of the hottest issues of a busy fall in the General Assembly. The Senate passed a two-point-five billion dollar transportation funding plan in June, but it's still waiting for a green light in the state House.
