PennDOT Suspends Operations in Face of Coronavirus

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is suspending all operations, including construction, except critical and emergency work due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

District and county maintenance offices are closed and construction projects have been suspended statewide until further notice. PennDOT crews will be available to perform critical functions and emergency maintenance as needed.

In Mississippi, MDOT has made staffing arrangements to ensure that essential maintenance functions and operations continue on the state’s transportation network. Construction and maintenance crews will remain on duty to perform core roles, such as construction inspections, roadway repairs and severe weather response.

“The Mississippi Department of Transportation is committed to a reliable transportation network to ensure the delivery of goods and services and the safety of the traveling public,” said MDOT Executive Director Melinda McGrath. “Despite the serious nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, essential personnel will continue to serve the state, and all others will be on-call and prepared to work when directed.”
