Project Overview

This project is for the safety improvement of the State Route 54 corridor near the SR 642 West (Liberty Valley Road) and SR 642 East (Jerseytown Road) intersections. The preferred alternative selected by PennDOT as presented at the November 2017 public meeting, was met with concerns by the public. PennDOT has formed a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) to assist in the development of the final alternative and possible interim options that could be implemented to assist with the flow of traffic through the corridor.


The CAC was assembled to represent a cross section of the stakeholders. PennDOT asked the municipalities to select one resident, one business representative and one municipal official from each of the local municipalities. In addition, local representatives from the Fire Companies, Emergency Services, Police Departments, School District, and County Commissioner's Office are included. A representative from Geisinger Health Center was also included due to the large volume of traffic in the corridor generated by that campus (employees, patients, and other business partners). A representative from SEDA-COG was also asked to be part of the CAC, as they are the planning organization responsible for the transportation needs of the region.


PennDOT's team will consist of Project Management personnel, Traffic Specialists, Municipal Services, and Consultants all collectively developing the project.


The purpose of the CAC is to review the corridor and develop options that meet needs of ALL stakeholders.  Both interim and long term solutions will be considered throughout the process. PennDOT is dedicated to engineering a project that meets the purpose and need, fits within the context of the surrounding community, provides a safe roadway corridor for today's motorists and accommodates future traffic growth.


After the CAC process is completed, a public meeting will be held on October 16, 2018 to announce the project chosen by the CAC and show the timeline for the construction of the final alternative.
