In a meeting several months ago the whole room was abuzz with arguments on the merits or disdain for the circular traffic pattern intersection.
Scattered about the room on easels were several plans to discuss on display, not all of them were roundabouts. Feed back was welcomed.
On Thursday PennDOT, in coordination with the City of Franklin, announced a plan to upgrade the exisiting intersection with improved designated turning lanes, the addition of a turning lane on to South Park Street and the addition of bike lanes between 13th Street and Washington Crossing. Improvements to pedestrian movement will also be included.
The anticipated work will happen in 2023.
