The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today the first of two public plans display for proposed improvements to the Bayfront Parkway Central Corridor (Route 4034) has been postponed due to the winter weather storm in the forecast for Erie County.

New time and date for the open house event, which was originally planned for Wednesday, November 28, will be announced at a later date.

The second plans display will be held as scheduled:
Date: December 4, 2018
Time: Noon to 8 PM
Location: Emerson Gridley School gymnasium
816 North Park Avenue
Erie, PA 16502

The two plans displays will help introduce the public to conceptual alternatives for improvements along the Central Corridor of the Bayfront Parkway, which consists of the intersections with Sassafras Street Extension, State Street, and Holland Street.

Representatives from PennDOT and the consultant will be on hand to gather feedback, which will be used to help refine the potential improvements and identify a project implementation strategy.
