 Transportation Planning

Through SEDA-COG, counties and municipalities in Central Pennsylvania have a voice in the state’s transportation plans. Working together with SEDA-COG, local government, the business community, and non-profit organizations establish the region’s transportation priorities.

Those priorities are detailed in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), updated by SEDA-COG every two years and often amended. There are numerous opportunities for public participation in developing the TIP, including its periodic review by SEDA-COG's Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The TIP encompasses the first four years of the Commonwealth’s Twelve Year Transportation Program. Below are links for the current SEDA-COG TIP and Commonwealth Twelve Year Program.

Among major projects in the region is the Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway (CSVT).  For more information, see the CSVT Project website.
