​State College Area Connector

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), conducted a State College Area Connector Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study. The PEL study evaluated transportation improvements in southern Centre County, Pennsylvania in a 70 square mile initial study area.

The results of the Study identified transportation  alternatives to advance into the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process and preliminary engineering. Three Build Alternative corridors were identified for further study in the NEPA process and a refined study area was developed.

This website is intended to facilitate the public outreach efforts undertaken by PennDOT and FHWA during both the PEL and NEPA processes.
