Township invites you to take survey on mobility in Northland area

Date: October 9, 2018

Ferguson Township, in coordination with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), the Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA), and the Centre Regional Planning Agency, is conducting a transportation mobility study to identify potential improvements in the Northland Area that includes portions of North Atherton Street, Martin Street, Blue Course Drive, Clinton Avenue, Cherry Lane, and Aaron Drive. The study will identify potential improvements for walking, biking, driving and using transit within the study area. The study is expected to be completed in spring 2019 when the recommended potential improvements will be shared with the public.

The Township is seeking public comments on transportation mobility and safety issues and recommendations for improvements in the study area using an online survey.

You will see a Welcome Page where you'll enter your email address, and be taken to a map of the area. At left, you'll see a tab, "About and Help." Use the dropdown to click on instructions, or view them here:
