Description:
Abstract:
Boundaries of municipalities within Pennsylvania as delineated for the PennDOT Type 10 general highway maps.  Additional information comes from the Pennsylvania Bureau of Municipal Services.  This layer contains all classifications of municipality including first and second class townships, boroughs, cities and the town.
			The shape file reflects a name change from Osborne borough to Glen Osborne borough in Allegheny county and a name change from Abington Township to Waverly Township in Lackawanna county. The shape file also reflects various municipal boundary line tweaks that have occurred since the 2011_01 update.
Purpose:
Public information and support for transportation planning, design and development.
Supplemental_Information:
This data is intended for use at 1:24,000 or smaller scale.  This layer supercedes and replaces previous versions of padot-borough, padot-city-town, and padot-township.
