The DVRPC/PennDOT Connects Bike-Friendly Resurfacing Program is an effort to identify roads for potential investment in bike friendly improvements as part of regularly scheduled PennDOT resurfacing projects.
PA Suburban Program
This effort is being coordinated between the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), PennDOT District 6, the four suburban counties in the Philadelphia region (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties), and the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia with the goal of identifying roads that are good candidates for bicycle facilities.

This effort is being coordinated between the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), PennDOT District 6, and the City of Philadelphia with the goal of identifying roads that are good candidates for bicycle facilities. Additionally, DVRPC assists the City of Philadelphia with an iterative design process that uses capacity analysis to assess the traffic impacts of proposed bike facilities.

View a simple map showing state-owned roads on District 6's resurfacing plan for the next few years. The plan is dynamic, changing based on road conditions and other maintenance priorities. This map is updated as new plans are made available through PennDOT's website and as paving packages are released.
Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) is a road classification scheme based on the comfort of bicyclists using that road. DVRPC’s LTS assignment is based on the number of lanes, effective vehicle speed, and presence/type of bicycle facility. The Connectivity Analysis was conducted to determine which segments provide the greatest number of connections throughout the region, from every census block to every other census block.
