Regional Operations Plan


In general, the purpose of a Regional Operations Plan (ROP) is to recommend and prioritize projects, programs, and strategies for managing traffic operations on Pennsylvania's transportation system. The Central Region RTMC is housed within the PennDOT District 2-0 Office in Clearfield, PA and covers 24 counties within Engineering Districts 2-0, 3-0, and 9-0. In December 2018, PennDOT completed a new ROP for the Central Region RTMC area.




Preparation of the new ROP focused on:

  • Summarizing existing conditions relative to safety, congestion and infrastructure
  • Listing transportation needs and operations issues, and addressing topics such as:
    • Traveler information
    • Incident and emergency management
    • Transportation system safety
    • Traffic signal improvements
    • Communications network
    • Enhanced asset management
  • Evaluating and prioritizing short-term and long-term projects
  • Preparing a recommended project list

In 2019, the ROP project list for Centre County will be used a source of candidate projects and programs for the new Centre County Long Rang Transportation Plan (LRTP) 2050, and the new 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
