Welcome to Erie County Planning
Transportation Overview

In Pennsylvania, the responsibility for maintaining our roads and bridges rests with our State and Local governments. In Erie County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) owns and maintains the Interstates (I-90, I-79, & I-86), US Highways (US 20, US 19, US 6, & US 6N), and State Routes (SRs). The remaining roadway network, as well as all traffic signals, are owned and maintained by the individual Municipal Governments.

In addition to our roadways and bridges, the transportation network in Erie County also includes Class I & Short-line Railroads, daily passenger train service, an industrial port, a commercial airport, a countywide public transit system, and a network of cycling and recreation trails.

While the actual construction, maintenance, and repair of the transportation system are performed by these various companies, government agencies, and authorities; the Erie County Department of Planning plays a significant role in coordinating these organizations, developing plans and studies, providing technical assistance and data analysis, engaging the general public and stakeholders, and prioritizing transportation funding for projects in our area.
