Short Description

 

Body

The SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) adopted one of its major transportation plans for an eight-county region that includes Clinton, Columbia, Juniata, Mifflin, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder and Union counties.

 

The adoption of the 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program signals the successful completion of a year-long effort that engaged county officials, municipalities, transit operators, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, other key stakeholders, and the public.

 

“The Transportation Improvement Program represents continuing investment in the region’s transportation network at every level, from local bridge projects to the Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation project,” said Jim Saylor, SEDA-COG Transportation Program director.

 

The Transportation Improvement Program is the agreed-upon list of priority projects in the SEDA-COG MPO region. The program has a total of 230 projects to be addressed over the next four years.

 

Some of the major projects in the adopted Transportation Improvement Program include:

 

Project name

County location

Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation project – northern and southern sections

Snyder, Union, and Northumberland counties

State Route 1001 (Farrandsville Road) resurfacing and safety improvements

Clinton County

State Route 339 resurfacing, bridge, and safety improvements

Columbia County

State Route 54 corridor safety improvements

Montour County

State Route 1005 resurfacing and safety corridor improvements

Mifflin County

Improvements on State Route 75 bridge over Norfolk Southern Railroad

Juniata County

 

State funding will cover nearly 75 percent of the Transportation Improvement Program project costs, which total around $447 million. The local funding match is less than 1 percent, while the federal funding level is at 25 percent.

 

The final adopted version of the Transportation Improvement Program will be available later in June on the SEDA‑COG website at www.seda-cog.org. Paper copies also will be available during business hours at the SEDA-COG office at 201 Furnace Road, Lewisburg.
