Upcoming Public Meetings
We are hosting a series of upcoming public meetings to review our region’s Long-Range Transportation Plan, and we want to hear directly from you! We will talking about how to tackle our region’s long-term transportation and infrastructure challenges.
These meetings will take place in our coverage area, specifically in the City of Pittsburgh, and in the ten counties throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania. These public meetings coincide with the public comment period which runs from May 11-June 9.
