Background
In coordination with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), the Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA), and the Centre Regional Planning Agency, Ferguson Township is conducting this transportation mobility study to identify potential improvements in the Northland area, which includes portions of North Atherton Street, Martin Street, Blue Course Drive, Clinton Avenue, Cherry Lane, and Aaron Drive.

The Township and its consultant, McCormick Taylor, expect to present the final study to the Ferguson Township Board of Supervisors at its Regular Meeting on Monday, May 6.

The Township also  sought public comments on transportation mobility and safety issues, as well as recommendations for improvements in the study area, through an online survey that participants completed in October.
