Accessing Highway Right-Of-Way: Whether you Want to or Not! - Virtual - 5/25/21

PennDOT and municipal roadways are used for a lot more than just passenger vehicle travel. This presentation will discuss three different ways that roadways can be used – intentionally or not!

·         Special Events: Our roadways can be used for anything from parades, festivals, film shoots, and outdoor dining – all requiring a Special Events Permit. COVID-19 brought changes to the use and implementation of Special Events Permits to follow all safety mitigation guidance.

·         Right of Entry Agreements: PennDOT uses the Right-of-Entry (ROE) Agreement to permit private industry to make improvements on a non-posted highway. ROEs are sometimes used to prevent the roadway from requiring a weight posting. While there are similarities, ROEs are not the same as posting and bonding a roadway.

·         Commercial Vehicle Navigation: Oversize or overweight vehicles degrade infrastructure faster than other vehicles. However, due to gaps in available data for common navigational devices, these large vehicles find themselves on roadways that cannot accommodate their size, height or weight – and that can lead to some expensive, unexpected outcomes. A recent study considered ways that commercial drivers plan their routes and what approaches may help to improve navigation and help keep our infrastructure safe.

Opportunities for interactive and open discussion will be included to develop better understanding of all three aspects of the presentation.
