The state should provide an alternate route that is free from regulatory obstacles that limit its usage and providers.
Pennsylvania does not limit the usage or providers of its alternate routes.
Pennsylvania is commended for having no restrictions on the usage of its alternate routes with regard to subject, grade or geographic areas.
