Walnut Street Corridor Redevelopment Planning Study

City of Harrisburg Planning Bureau

The City of Harrisburg, Susquehanna Township, Penbrook Borough, and Lower Paxton Township are seeking proposals from qualified consultants for the preparation of a Redevelopment Planning Study for the corridor known alternately as State Street in the City, Walnut Street in Susquehanna Township and Penbrook, and Jonestown Road in Lower Paxton Township (including Herr Street from its intersection with Walnut Street in Penbrook Borough
westward to Herr Street's intersection with Cameron Street in the City of Harrisburg). This project area, to be known as the Walnut Street Corridor Study, traverses west to east outward from the City of Harrisburg to newer and rapidly developing suburban municipalities, and carries U.S. Route 22 over it's eastern length. This corridor experiences high traffic volumes, unsafe
pedestrian situations, adjacent land use conflicts, uncoordinated vehicular access and signalization, and various other underperforming aspects. Preference will be given to consultants who demonstrate experience in the following areas:
• corridor transportation issues in a built environment;
• economic development/revitalization of core downtowns;
• aesthetic, signage, and urban design capabilities; and
• working with state transportation agencies; multiple municipalities; and communitydevelopment corporations, businesses, and community leaders.
