The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) is looking for public feedback on the development of its Route 17 PEL Study, and is inviting the public to attend its first virtual workshop on Thursday, March 18, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The Route 17 Planning and Environment Linkages Study (PEL) is being initiated by New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). This study will evaluate the engineering feasibility and potential environmental impacts of reasonable alternatives to address the corridor’s transportation needs brought about by current and anticipated growth in the region.

During the workshop, participants will:

• Learn about existing planning, traffic, highway, structure and environmental conditions

• Provide input on the vision, goals, and objectives for the study

• Contribute thoughts on corridor needs

• Explore the PEL process
