The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has plans to develop a 30,000 square-foot, $33 million facility that will accommodate their planned hiring boost within the next few years.
The new development, which will be built on land near the current center in King of Prussia, will accommodate the need for new hires due to Pennsylvania transportation systems’ growing need of maintenance and technological advances.
According to Philadelphia Business Journal, the project will break ground in 2020 with a projected finish date of 2021. PennDOT will continue to operate out of their current office until the development’s completion.
PennDOT oversees all things transportation-related in the Commonwealth, including the over 100 interstate highway interchanges located in Greater Philadelphia.
