STATE COLLEGE – PennDOT Engineering District 2, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, will host an open house public meeting on July 17, for the Route 322 Potters Mills Gap Project in Potter Township, Centre County.
The public can attend the open-house public meeting at their convenience from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Penns Valley Elementary School in Spring Mills. Formal presentations providing a project overview will be offered at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.
“Drivers frequently face delays and congestion along this section of Route 322 due to truck traffic navigating steep grades. Motorists also face safety considerations at the intersection with Route 144,” said PennDOT District 2 Executive Kevin Kline. “The improvements we’re considering would address these and other needs. We encourage the public to attend the meeting, share their thoughts and learn more about the proposed improvements.”
The meeting’s purpose is to introduce the project, discuss the purpose and need, present potential solutions, identify the next steps and gather public feedback. Members of the public who have knowledge of historic resources in the project area are also encouraged to attend.
Project team members and PennDOT officials will be on hand to discuss the project and gather public input.
The project’s intent is to improve safety, reduce congestion, enhance mobility and alleviate access concerns along nearly four miles of Route 322. The project area begins west of the Route 322/PA 144 intersection at Potters Mills and extends east to the Centre/Mifflin County line.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the meeting facility is accessible to individuals with disabilities. Any person requiring additional information or special assistance should contact Project Manager Steven L. Fantechi at 814-765-0677.
