PENNDOT HOSTS CHINESE HIGHWAY OFFICIALS

 PENNDOT HOSTS CHINESE HIGHWAY OFFICIALS
 HARRISBURG, Pa., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The state Department of


Transportation (PennDOT) has begun hosting a 12-day visit of 10 highway officials from the People's Republic of China, who have come to examine Pennsylvania's highway and bridge maintenance system.
 "The group wants to study our planning and construction procedures, but is especially interested in the programs we use to maintain expressways and Interstates," said William R. Moyer, PennDOT deputy secretary for highway administration.
 "The Chinese tell us they have a modern, well designed highway system, comparable to our Interstate system, but have outdated techniques and limited equipment to make the system last."
 Specifically, the delegation wants to learn how PennDOT's headquarters operation in Harrisburg works with the 11 district offices around the state and what kinds of equipment the department uses in highway maintenance.
 The 10 Chinese representatives plus one interpreter will spend part of their time in Harrisburg and part in other areas of the state.
 Their schedule includes a tour of Interstate 476 in Delaware County, a tour of the Southern Expressway and tunnel systems in Allegheny County, a visit to the Turnpike Commission, and tours of various bureaus in PennDOT's highway administration area.
 The group is spending a total of 10 weeks in the United States, visiting other state transportation agencies.
 PennDOT was asked by the Federal Highway Administration to show Pennsylvania's highway system to the group.
