State College, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has made an update available on recommended alternatives for its State College Area Connector Planning and Environmental Linkage (PEL) Study. A presentation outlining each recommended alternative can be seen at www.PennDOT.pa.gov/SCAC. The link is listed under the “What’s new on the SCAC PEL Site”. The presentation also includes purpose and need, environmental impacts, traffic analysis and planning impacts. [Direct link to the presentation.]
These same recommended alternatives will be displayed and reviewed as part of the next public meetings–tentatively set for the evenings of October 19 and 20 at the Mount Nittany Middle School in Boalsburg. More specific meeting details will be shared as plans evolve.
The purpose of the State College Area Connector Study is to identify existing and projected transportation needs within the study area. The study is being done by PennDOT in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
