The Adams County Transportation Planning Organization (ACTPO) in partnership with PennDOT and local municipalities, has launched an online survey to gather public comment as it advances its work on a study of the PA 94 corridor. The study area includes State Route 94 between Dicks Dam Road and Hanover Street. It also includes a portion of US Route 30 between Lincoln Street and Stanley Drive.

ACTPO initiated the traffic and transportation study in response to concerns expressed by officials from Berwick, Hamilton, and Oxford Townships, citing safety concerns and potential impacts of future development. The study will establish a framework for improving traffic operations and safety for all modes as well as addressing land use and economic development impacts. An action plan will include recommendations that may include further planning efforts at the regional and local level, coordination with stakeholders, and operational or physical improvements.’

Adams Economic Alliance, as a partner to ACTPO, encourages the public to provide feedback.

Area residents and travelers are invited to take the online survey, which is available at:

The survey allows participants to describe their experiences traveling through study area, offer feedback on potential transportation solutions, and identify areas of concern through an interactive map. The survey and interactive map will be active through May 13.

“Hearing directly from the public on their transportation concerns along PA 94 will give us a clear understanding of areas along the corridor in need of further evaluation or improvement,” said Andrew Merkel, Assistant Director at the Adams County Office of Planning and Development. “The feedback we gather from the survey will inform the next phases of the study process. By working together to define these areas of need, we can begin defining short- and long-term strategies that the community is supportive of that will ultimately enhance safety and mobility for all who use the corridor.”

The study process is being guided by a steering committee consisting of representatives from area municipalities as well as the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). ACTPO officials anticipate having a final study report completed by June 2024.
