These include improving economic development potential, increasing safety, reducing congestion and improving connectivity between I-68, the four-lane section of US 219, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The workshop will provide information on the study’s purpose and need, the alternatives under consideration, and a summary of the environmental, traffic, and other analyses completed to date.
