The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is conducting a corridor study of Route 219 from the Maryland State Line to the southern limit of the Meyersdale Bypass. This section of the corridor is located in Elk Lick and Summit townships, and the Borough of Salisbury in Somerset County. The study will involve a comprehensive review of the existing corridor in relationship to the existing roadway that will provide recommendations of various improvements for current and future needs of the roadway.

Kicking off the study, a public officials meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 2 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Salisbury Volunteer Fire Hall, 385 Ord Street, Salisbury. The public is invited to attend, and following that meeting, a public plans display will be held in the same location, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

This is a tremendous opportunity to get the study started with momentum, and demonstrate our community’s support for completing Route 219. Please plan on attending!
