Pennsylvania DOT announces plan to improve traffic management on I-76

PennDOT secretary Leslie S. Richards has announced a long-range, comprehensive, multi-modal transportation management plan designed to enhance travel along the Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) corridor between King of Prussia and Philadelphia. The plan includes expanded public transit, improved traffic management on I-76 and local roads, and potential trail improvements.
“The importance of this corridor to the Philadelphia region cannot be overstated and it’s imperative that we take advantage of new technologies and partner with SEPTA [Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority] and other key stakeholders to offer citizens more attractive options for travel between Philadelphia and the northwest suburbs,” says Richards. “This corridor-wide strategy consists of several elements to improve travel whether you’re driving on the expressway, riding SEPTA’s regional rail, or bicycling along the Schuylkill River Trail.”
