Surface Transportation Project Requests

The deadline to submit requests to the office of Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson (PA-15) for Member Designated Projects (MDP) for the upcoming surface transportation reauthorization has passed.  Enacted in 2015, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, was the last comprehensive, long-term surface transportation legislation and is set to expire on September 30, 2021. 

MDPs will be used on a limited basis for the upcoming surface transportation reauthorization. The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure has provided guidance on what projects will be eligible under these designations.  Specifically, only capital projects under Title 23, United States Code (Highways), and Chapter 53 of Title 49, United States Code (Public Transit), will be considered. Additionally, submission of a request does not guarantee a project will be authorized for funding.

Please review the MDP guidelines per the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure to ensure your project meets the requirements.  If a project does not meet these requirements, the request will not be considered.

Below, please find my MDP submissions for the upcoming surface reauthorization legislation.

If you have any questions, please contact my office at PA15.TranspoRequests@mail.house.gov.
