Notable new listings for reconstruction projects:

-MP 9-12 reconstruction, between the New Castle (I-376) and Beaver Valley (PA 18) interchanges. The section west of here is at six lanes, and east of here is the upcoming Beaver River Bridge replacement.
-MP 38-40 reconstruction. This was reconstructed already about 15-20 years ago, but not widened. The sections immediately east and west of here are at six lanes.
-MP 134-138, MP 138-145, MP 145-150, MP 155-161 reconstruction. Together with the previously listed MP 124-134 and MP 149.5-155.5, this would cover the distance from the Allegheny Tunnel to Breezewood. With the tunnel replacement/bypass, completion of these projects would make the entire I-70/I-76 concurrency fully reconstructed (but not fully at six lanes).
-MP 180-186 is removed. Completion of the above projects west of Breezewood would mean this, along with the section west of here to the east end of the Abandoned PA Turnpike, would be the last remaining significant length (excluding tunnels) of original Turnpike pavement in use.
-MP 248-251 reconstruction, from Harrisburg East (I-283/PA 283) to the Swatara Creek bridge. The section west of here is at six lanes out to Harrisburg West (I-83).

My guess is that most, if not all, of these newly listed projects don't actually go to construction until the 2030s at the earliest.

The strange thing is there is barely any expenditure for MP 320-326, yet they just started a multi-year widening project for MP 324-326.  They did not split out the project in the budget.

Nor is there much funding listed for MP 320-326 in last year's plan. They got money from somewhere though, considering the project is underway.

ARMOURERERIC:
Based on the dollar values assigned  to those projects, one would figure that is for design work.  However,  note the line item labeled: total recon systemwide.  See how the money allocated explodes going out 3-5 years?  I think that is the pot that these projects are funded from on an as ready to go basis.  I really can't see what else it would be for.
