HARRISBURG - Rep. Greg Rothman (R-Cumberland) announced today that Hampden Township will receive a grant from the Multimodal Transportation Fund. Hampden Township is to receive $400,000 for road improvements at the Carlisle Pike and S. Sporting Hill Road intersection in Cumberland County.
“Improving traffic flow and pedestrian safety have been major goals of Hampden Township,” said Rothman. “I am pleased to see this grant funding will be available to alleviate many of these concerns and improve road safety for families and commercial activity.”
Hampden Township is planning to alleviate traffic congestion and pedestrian safety concerns by extending the right-turn lane on eastbound Carlisle Pike to create two through lanes from Gateway Drive to South Sporting Hill Road, extending a shared through/right-turn lane on westbound Carlisle Pike, updating pedestrian phase lengths to conform with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) requirements, and modifying crosswalks and curb cut ramps to conform with ADA requirements.
The proposed Hampden Township project will consist of mobilization, excavation, stormwater improvements, curb installation, road resurfacing, five utility pole relocation, signage, and pavement markings.
