PA Turnpike Corridor Reinvestment Project

2015 Planning Excellence Aware – Best Practice
PA Turnpike Corridor Reinvestment Project

Montgomery County Planning Commission

The Turnpike corridor project holistically combined transportation design with economic development and land use planning to promote revitalization of 7 older suburban business parks located along the PA Turnpike but lacking good access.  The project created a new land use vision for each park, reflecting emerging business opportunities and needs, and a design for new Turnpike interchange ramps at all 7 parks. The project made a persuasive business case, including cost and revenue projections, for the Turnpike to invest in the new access areas.  The plan document provides clear and compelling maps, design concepts, and talking points supporting the proposals.
