PennDOT's Biehler to head AASHTO

Posted on October 22, 2008

PennDOT Secretary Allen D. Biehler, P.E., has been elected as president of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). He served as vice president of the organization this year.

Biehler has identified three emphasis areas that will guide the organization in 2009. At the forefront is the authorization of a new federal surface transportation program. AASHTO will work with Congress to create a program that is multi-modal and identifies options to fund the needed investments to our nation's transportation system.

A second emphasis area focuses on progressing to sustainability where transportation investments benefit the economy and the environment, as well as improve the quality of life for citizens.

The third emphasis area involves developing a strategic business plan for multi-modal freight since the efficient movement of goods is vital to a healthy economy.
