All of the data has now been collected for this project. There was some delay in receiving approval to perform core boring samples of the pavement along Market Street, however, as of earlier this month – that is now complete. The consulting engineers, Traffic Planning and Design (TPD) is working with the Borough and members of the Steering Committee to prepare the final report for this project. Components of the Study include: The History of Market Street and its regional economic context, an analysis of the Existing Roadway Network and Impact of other Regional Transportation Projects, Existing Traffic Conditions, Crash Analysis and Traffic Signal Phasing Analysis, Community Input, Projected Future Traffic Conditions, and then the Recommendations and Conclusions. This report is expected to wrap up in September sometime and then be distributed to members of the Borough Council and Steering Committee for review. The public meeting of the results and findings of this Study is expected to take place in October. Please stay tuned for more information!
The Final Presentation for the Market Street Corridor Transportation Study will be on Tuesday, July 9th at 6:30pm at the William Cameron Engine Fire Hall in the Training Classroom (enter through N 5th St entrance). The address is 239 North 5th Street.
*Please Note: This date has been changed from the Borough Council’s June Work Session (on June 11) to the July Work Session date to allow more time for the engineers to analyze the enormous amount of data collected and subsequently for the Borough staff and Steering Committee to review the findings and recommendations from the engineer.
We hope to see you in attendance on July 9th!
