The Route 28 Corridor Study team engaged local stakeholders and organizations to identify interests and concerns along the corridor. The Study Team and Steering Committee identified potential stakeholders representing both rural and urban areas. Stakeholders included emergency services, school transportation officials, municipal representatives, frequent roadway or trail users, and more.
In late February 2020, stakeholders were invited to attend one of three meetings. Meetings were held in Brookville, New Bethlehem, and Kittanning to get a broad geographic spread of comments, and for ease of stakeholder attendance. Steering Committee and Study Team members participated in all three meetings. Representatives from the stakeholder organizations provided valuable input and local insight into the study. All of the input collected from the Stakeholder Interviews is included in the Existing Conditions Report.
