Posted: January 5, 2015 9:59 am


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Engineering District 1-0
launched an online public survey to gather the public input regarding future transportation
improvements along the Bayfront Parkway corridor in Erie, PA.

The purpose of the survey is to gather the public’s thoughts and opinions on what type of transportation
improvements are most needed along the corridor, why those improvements are a priority, and where
those improvements should be implemented.

The survey can also be accessed through the project website, The website provides more details about the study process, and the
data and information being collected. The website will be updated periodically as the Bayfront Parkway
Corridor Study progresses throughout the next year. The survey will be available to the public until
February 27, 2015.

“We are excited about the changes coming to the Bayfront area and want our future roadway plans to
reflect and complement the planned developments,” said Bill Petit, P.E., PennDOT District Executive.
“The survey and website will be a great way for us to hear from the community and to find out what
multimodal improvements they would like to see along the Bayfront Parkway.”

Both the website and the survey are part of an overall public outreach plan for the Bayfront Parkway
Corridor Study that was initiated in August 2014. To date, the study team has conducted over 25
stakeholder interviews and recently developed a Project Advisory Committee. The purpose of the study
is to identify future projects that will maximize safety, improve congestion, reduce facility deficiencies,
improve mobility throughout the corridor, and support existing and future economic development

Public meetings are planned for 2015 and more information will be available in the coming months.
