  • Two-lane roundabout is provided instead of the signalized intersection at Route 352 and Route 452

Typical Section

Route​ 352

  • Two lanes in each direction are required
  • Minimum 10 feet right-of-way width from the edge of the shoulder is required to accommodate sidewalk, roadway signs, and overhead utility lines

Environmental

The following environmental impacts are anticipated by both alternatives for Area 3:

  • Impacts to watercourse and wetlands are not anticipated.
  • The potential presence of threatened and endangered plant species within the study limits were identified by Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI).  Further coordination with the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) will take place during the next phases of the design.
  • The environmental policies referenced in Station 5 – Environment will be followed as the project moves into the next phase of the design.
  • As the area is fully developed, there will be residential and commercial property impacts.
  • The next phase of the design will define these impacts in more detail while minimizing them.
