He said one example of a Next Generation Project is the department's ePermitting system for highway occupancy permits, which moved the process online, increased transparency and reduced the review time from an average of 45 days to 10 days.
"PennDOT's Next Generation efforts are focusing on using every dollar effectively and efficiently in delivering transportation products. PennDOT is doing more with less while continuing to focus on the quality of their service," Corbett said.
The initiative so far has included technology improvements, employee suggestions and private-sector innovation to evaluate and enhance business practices.
Next Generation projects also include efficiencies stemming from increased coordination with other state partners, and other modernization efforts.
"Pennsylvania has a well-established need for additional transportation funding, this is critical to preserve our economy and our quality of life," Corbett said.
"As we move forward to establish new revenues it is critical that PennDOT is able to maximize every dollar possible."
