US 30 Reconstruction Program
Eastern Project Area (Section CER)
STATION 6 – Noise Impact & Right-of-Way Info
The Eastern Project Area (Section CER) is currently in the Conceptual Design phase, which will take approximately one year to complete. The next phase will be Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Evaluation, which is anticipated to last approximately two to four years. Final Design will follow, with a two-to-four-year timeframe for the various interchange sub-projects, which will be broken out from the larger Eastern Project during the Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Evaluation phase.
The following graphic illustrates the steps within the noise evaluation process. The use of noise barriers will be evaluated during the Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Evaluation phase. Additional public meetings and special process meetings will be held as the project progresses to discuss the possible use of noise barriers.
Noise Evaluation Process
Since the Eastern Project Area (Section CER) is currently in the Conceptual Design phase, property impacts are not yet known. Should your property be needed for transportation purposes, you will be contacted, and you may be assured that PennDOT’s Right-of-Way Representatives will gladly answer any questions you may have. You may also be assured that it is PennDOT’s intention to achieve the best possible transportation facilities while maintaining your satisfaction as a private landowner. More information about the acquisition process can be found in PennDOT Publication 83.
