Difficult topography? Check. Dense surrounding development? Check. A huge tunnel? Check. While the Parkway East Corridor could use improvements, it’s hard to even imagine how to make changes to this highway which is one of the busiest in our region. However, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Engineering District 11, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is performing a comprehensive evaluation of the I-376 Parkway East Corridor Transportation Network–from Pittsburgh to Monroeville. This transportation evaluation will be used to create strategies to improve safety and mobility.

They will be holding two Open House Public Information Displays. The purpose of these meetings is to both provide information to the public as well as to gather feedback. Attendees will hear the results of recent traffic studies and public outreach efforts. They will also hear next steps for the project. They want you to add your voice to this process.

You can obtain project information by visiting the project website at www.i376parkwayeast.com.
