  1. Project Description and Needs • Lincoln Way Widening • Addition of a center-turn lane and safety improvements to the grade and • horizontal alignment. • Needs • Increase safety within the existing corridor • Reduce traffic congestion • Provide access management • Provide infrastructure improvement to foster economic development • along the corridor

  2. Project Development to Date • Public Meeting – reviewed and received input regarding • initial five alternatives • Alternative 3 - determined to be the preferred alternative • Right-Sizing of Alternative 3 - provided most economical • option, while meeting the • project needs • Preliminary Engineering – in progress, near completion

  3. Overview – “Right-Sized” Alternative 3 • Adding a turn lane using variable width widening • Constructing a barrier curb for safety and access control • Constructing a sidewalk and pedestrian buffer • Realigning Henderson and Guice Road for increased • safety and efficient travel • Improvements to State Street • Upgrading traffic signal at the intersection of • Lincoln Way and Route 48

  7. Preliminary Maintenance of Traffic During Construction • Four Phases of Traffic Control; places an emphasis on • minimizing disruption to business owners • Widen to the east maintaining two lanes on the west • Widen to the west maintaining two lanes on the east • Maintain pedestrian access through work zone • during construction • PennDOT will coordinate details with • municipality during Final Design • Maintain access to businesses

  8. Traffic Signals: Construction & Upgrades • New signal at Henderson and Guice • Upgrade to the existing signal at State Street • Timing adjustments at Route 48

  9. Driveway Adjustments & ADA Compliance • Depressed concrete curb to define access • to businesses • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) • compliant ramps at all intersections • and driveway access points

  10. Potential Required Right-of-Way • Several potential property, or sliver takes • Potential total takes or displacements to accommodate • safety improvements at Henderson and Guice • Right-of-Way acquisition process typically lasts • 18 to 24 months

  11. Funding • Current Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) • Discussions currently on-going regarding TIP Update • Preliminary Engineering Estimate Currently Being • Developed

  12. Next Steps • Complete Preliminary Engineering • Begin Final Design • Complete Right-of-Way acquisition plan • Advertise Project for Construction • Notice to proceed to selected contractor • Construction Phase / Open to Traffic
