The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will break ground on a new traffic management center in 2020, an approximately $33 million project that makes way for the state agency's plans to boost its headcount.
A new two-story, 30,000 square-foot facility will be built on a parcel of land near PennDOT's current center in King of Prussia. That space is operating at 40 percent over capacity, and a larger facility will cut down on the overcrowding while making room for new hires, officials said at a Thursday press conference.
Maintenance of new technologies in Pennsylvania’s transportation systems, particularly along Interstate 76, will require PennDOT to hire new employees. The current facility does not have enough space for those hires and the update systems, PennDOT Deputy Communications Director Brad Rudolph said.
