Imagine where these projects would be if the Pennsylvania Legislature had not ordered  PTC to pour billions of dollars down the transit subsidy rathole with Act 44.

Using Covid-19 as an excuse is a non-excuse, because it hit everyone relatively equally.  Most transportation agencies aren't using that on a continual basis like the PTC is doing.  Many other agencies have seen most of their traffic return to normal, or fairly close to normal.

Also, how important were those highways anyway?  Even with Act 44, the money that the PA Turnpike does have winds up being spent on roads of questionable value, whereas the money could be better spent in areas where traffic demands call for widening and construction.
