​State College Area Connector: Planning and Environmental Linkages Study

PennDOT District 2 conducted the State College Area Connector Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study to identify transportation needs within the PEL study area. The study evaluated a range of alternatives to determine how the alternatives addressed the study's purpose and need, balanced impacts on the natural and built environment, addressed traffic concerns within the overall study area, and met engineering considerations such as constructability, cost, and considered planning goals. The results of the analysis are presented in this PEL report

Below are two versions of the PEL Study report. The PDF version is a full-color version of the document that includes graphic illustrations. The text-only version contains the same content as the PDF, but excludes some graphical elements to allow for easier language translation and use of other accessible technology applications. It also does not include the appendices.

The following documents were prepared in support of the PEL Study and are available for review:
