WHY DO WE NEED TO STUDY IT?

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT) is looking for a solution that will meet the transportation needs in the PA Route 23 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) study area. This study area includes all or a portion of seven municipalities (New Holland Borough, East Earl, Earl, West Earl, Upper Leacock, East Lampeter and Manheim Townships). PENNDOT strongly believes in helping these communities maintain their way of life.

Growth is coming to these communities even if no transportation improvement is built. PENNDOT and the County of Lancaster have agreed to include land use planning in the environmental and engineering studies currently underway for the PA 23 EIS study. The PA 23 EIS Land Use study team is working with local municipalities to figure out how future growth can be managed.
