Republicans and Democrats in the Pennsylvania statehouse seem to agree on at least one thing: Not another construction season can go by without addressing the state's aged infrastructure.

But this unity may splinter when Gov. Tom Corbett reveals his plan early next year, a plan where the main components are still unknown.

Senate Democrats were the latest group of legislators to feed the anticipation, laying out their priorities for long-term transportation needs at a Wednesday morning press conference. The lawmakers said they're hoping to see a long-term plan that addresses highways, bridges, mass transit and rail.
