Anthony Berger from PennDOT explained a lot about the procedures PennDOT uses to get input from the public and how PennDOT is gradually changing to be more inclusive of all road users. Geoff Knight, Harrisburg City Planner, spoke about a lot of exciting improvement that Harrisburg is working to implement, including adding multiple bike lanes and bike routes. One big project Harrisburg would like to see completed as soon as possible is the reconstruction of the Cumberland Valley Railroad Bridge on the south end of City Island so it could be used for bikers, pedestrians and mass transit. This bridge would provide and important connection between Lemoyne and Harrisburg. This picture above represents one conceptual vision for this bridge.
And Mark Riordan won the 50/50 raffle which benefits the HBC Janet Pontius safety fund.
