2013 Annual Awards winner – Planning Excellence Award – Plan Other Than a Comprehensive Plan
Awarded to Business Route 62 Corridor Study, Mercer County Regional Planning Commission, Shenango Valley Area Transportation Study MPO
The Business 62 Study dealt with one of Mercer County’s busiest corridors in an innovative way. It recommended all low- to moderate-cost improvements, improvements nonetheless that would have high impact in reducing vehicle congestion, and make it better for pedestrians and bicyclers, and help the development in the corridor. Plan recommendations were varied and tailored to the downtown, transition, and suburban parts of the corridor. The plan provided detailed steps on how to implement the recommendations. It led to no-nonsense talk with PennDOT. After six months, several projects were already being designed or underway.
