PennDOT and FHA Partner to Form STIC
The Federal Highway Administration and PennDOT partnered in 2010 to create the State Transportation Innovation Council, also known as the STIC. The STIC is a team whose purpose is to promote a culture of innovation for creative answers to modern transportation problems throughout the state. The STIC is just one of five initiatives in PennDOT’s Next Generation program, which has saved PennDOT an estimated $100 million per year so far.
New Online STIC Web Viewer Tool
Recently, PennDOT secretary Barry Schoch announced a new website that allows the view to see various innovations Pennsylvania is implementing throughout the state. These innovations include improved safety, environmentally green pavement materials and techniques, and more efficient construction methods in bridge building which save time and money for the state.
“The STIC Web Viewer allows our customers and partners to see the innovative techniques that we’re implementing to increase safety, save time and money for our customers and business partners,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch was quoted as saying. “Working with our state, federal and industry partners we’re identifying proven practices and are continuously striving to deliver a safer, more efficient transportation system.”
