Plans for the Bayfront Connector (Route 290) and Buffalo Road Ramp Improvement Project in the City of Erie are available to view on the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) website, here.
The post includes copies of the boards shared with the public during a plans display on July 31 at the McKinley Elementary School in the city’s East Side neighborhood. The comment form for the project is also available online through August 10 here
The project is focused on improving mobility and safety at the intersection. Plans include realigning the Bayfront Connector ramp onto Buffalo Street as a two-way street. Pedestrian safety improvements will be made on the Bayfront Connector, Buffalo Street, and Pennsylvania Avenue. The city-owned bike trail will also be realigned as part of the project.
The work is expected to be completed during the 2019 construction season.
