FINAL PUBLIC PRESENTATION ON THE MARKET STREET CORRIDOR STUDY
The Final Public Presentation on the Market Street Corridor Study has been set for
Wednesday, October 16th at 6 pm
(doors will open at 5:30 pm)
at the Campus Theater in Downtown Lewisburg.
The Market Street Corridor Study is a data-driven comprehensive planning and engineering study that has assessed public safety, public health, environmental, and transportation concerns along Market Street (PA Route 45) in the Historic District of Lewisburg Borough, Union County, PA. The study area consists of a nine-block section of Market Street through pedestrian-friendly Downtown Lewisburg, from the intersection of Market Street & US Route 15 to the Market Street Bridge over the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.
Early in 2019, the Borough of Lewisburg, its citizens, and its partnering institutions and organizations came together for the mutual purpose of seeking a better understanding of the impacts of heavy vehicle traffic along Market Street, now and in the future. An engineering consulting team was hired to perform technical data research and analysis, such as: pedestrian, car and truck counts, speed studies, crash analyses, traffic signal phasing analyses, sound level and vibration analyses, as well as merchant and safety survey inquiries.
Five core concerns emerged from the study: Public Health and Safety; Integrity of the Historic District; Economic Viability and Vitality of the Downtown; Public and Private Infrastructure; and Overall Quality of Life.
The presentation will be made by the Borough of Lewisburg and their consulting engineer, Traffic Planning and Design, Inc. The presentation will walk through a summary of the project results as well as what the conclusions and recommendations are for the Lewisburg Borough Council and other partners to consider as the next steps.
Please join us for the Public Meeting on October 16th to hear the findings of this important study!
