Main Street Hanover supports the Eisenhower Extension

Aug 30, 2021 | News, Uncategorized

Main Street Hanover supports the 5C option for the Eisenhower Extension project as it provides the best outcome for the greater Hanover community.

We believe the 5C option is the only way to improve the area’s roadway system because it will improve the traffic and roadway system in the community, address traffic congestion, reduce drive times for the area on already heavily congested roadways, improve safety within study area which experiences higher-than-average crash frequency when compared to similar roadways within the Commonwealth

This project has been studied and supported by local leaders and regional transportation planning organizations for the past 30 years.  The Eisenhower Drive Extension Project is located in York and Adams Counties. Eisenhower Drive, SR 94 (Carlisle Street), and SR 116 (Hanover Road, West Elm Street, 3rd Street) are main traffic corridors through McSherrystown, Hanover, Conewago Township, and Penn Township. These roadways are heavily congested, do not move traffic as efficiently as needed, and experience higher-than-average crash frequency when compared to similar roadways within the Commonwealth.

This project involves extending Eisenhower Drive through Conewago Township, from where it currently ends at High Street to Hanover Road (SR 116) west of McSherrystown.

Our Main Street Program has done a great deal to improve the downtown, boosting its charm and preserving its character. A project like what is proposed in the TSM alternative would effectively decimate the downtown corridor by increasing traffic in our historic Center Square. The downtown district’s character would drastically change if the primary arteries were widened to accommodate four lanes of traffic on Carlisle St. The 5C option is the only alternative that will support safer roadways and provide traffic congestion relief in the area.

It is our opinion that the TSM Alternative or No Build are not appropriate or safe options for the Hanover Community. The 5C option is the only alternative that will support safer roadways and provide traffic congestion relief in the area. We support the 5C Alternative as the best option to address the current and future needs of the greater Hanover area.
