 Project Highlights

Purpose

The purpose of the Harrisburg Transportation Center (HTC) Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) initiative is to redevelop the blighted area north and east of the station while increasing train and bus ridership.
 

​Description

Work involves developing a conceptual scenario for TOD of parcels in a four-block area behind the station between State and Mulberry Streets, Cameron Street, and the train tracks.  The plan will promote:

Visioning Week, held in September 2016, was the centerpiece of a multifaceted public engagement strategy for the project.

The flood potential of nearby Paxton Creek was identified as a critical concern through the public engagement activities. An evaluation of Paxton Creek is currently underway in coordination with the City of Harrisburg and other stakeholders. The results of this study will aid in the conceptual scenario for the TOD.

The preferred TOD scenario may advance for further study and/or implementation through future multidisciplined public- and private-sector efforts.
 

status

Planning began in June 2016 and multiple conceptual design scenarios were unveiled at an open house in December 2016. The preferred concept plan is expected to be completed in ​2017.
 

funding Partners

PennDOT is leading the conceptual planning phase.
