HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — A new 12-year plan for transportation-related projects in Pennsylvania outlines how the state will spend more than $21 billion generated by higher gasoline taxes and motorist fees.

The State Transportation Commission released the updated plan Thursday that describes how more than $62 billion will be allocated. Just two years ago the 12-year plan involved more than $41 billion in spending.

The highway funding law enacted in December is ramping up to bring in about $2.3 billion annually in new revenue.

The updated plan now goes to federal officials for their review and possible approval.
