(Harrisburg) -- PennDOT is trying to look into the future, and is asking for the public's help.
A new interactive survey is designed to help shape the direction the agency takes.
Found at paontrack.com, it asks users to pick five priorities, from options like road widening, or public transportation, or highway safety.
But, it also focuses on specific needs in different parts of the state, allowing issues in specific areas to get dragged on the map.
For example, one could ask for bike or pedestrian improvements at the intersection of Route 222 and East Liberty Street in Lancaster.
Or one could highlight traffic congestion in an area that isn't already marked on the map.
"We're looking at very long range needs. Down the road, what will our economy look like? What will our roadway system look like? What will our demographics look like? And what are our needs? And looking at the priorities from our customers is a huge part of that effort," says Erin Waters Trasatt of PennDOT.
There are four small parts to the survey - priorities, investment scenarios, an interactive map, and how to stay involved.
The deadline is May 30th.
