PROJECT OVERVIEW

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is currently performing preliminary engineering/environmental studies for a planned project to improve the existing six-leg signalized intersection on US 322 (Paxton Street) at SR 3006 (Chambers Hill Road), SR 2019 (Grayson Road), South 82nd Street and Hilton Street within Swatara Township, Dauphin County. 

The purpose of the project is to reduce congestion, and improve mobility, accessibility, and safety in the area of the intersection including the Milroy and Grayson Roads intersection and the US 322 and Witmer Drive intersection.  This holistic solution best supports the regional and local community. This section of US 322 is very congested with traffic volume historically rising. This trend is expected to continue with future planned developments to the west and east of the intersections.

A recommended alternative has been developed to reconfigure the intersections as the best approach to achieve these goals. A Public “Open House” Meeting is scheduled for April 4, 2019, from 5:30 – 8:30 PM, at the Swatara Township Municipal Building to share information. As a matter of convenience, the public meeting resource documents are also listed on the right side of this page, as an alternative means to view the materials.

The project, once more fully developed, would be anticipated to be bid sometime after the Fall of 2021, subject to all approvals, environmental clearances, and funding availability.
