The Wait for the Rt. 903 E-ZPass Ramp Is Almost Over...

What Does This Mean For Carbon County Growth?


The E-Z Pass is scheduled to open June 30.  This will be a good thing for people coming into the area from the turnpike making it easier to get to Jim Thorpe, Split Rock and Penns Peak. However, it will also create more traffic on Rt. 903, and in the future, it could also bring more commercial growth to that corridor.   We are currently working on a Long Range Transportation Plan in partnership with the Northeast Pennsylvania Alliance (NEPA) within the four county region of Schuylkill, Carbon, Monroe and Pike counties which will attempt to plan out 12 and 25 years in the future what the growth patterns could be and where transportation issues could arise.  The plan will also help us to get road and bridge projects on the funding list for the state and county as they prepare their construction budgets for the future.
