CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (December 9, 2021) – The Franklin County Commissioners are encouraging the public to offer feedback on proposed I-81 Improvement Strategy initiatives – including in the greater Chambersburg area – during two upcoming online public forums.


Leaders of the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC) will discuss proposed changes, including safety and congestion improvements, within the Chambersburg and Carlisle region during a virtual meeting beginning at 7 p.m. Dec. 14. A second meeting, set for 7 p.m. Dec. 15, will focus on the greater Harrisburg area as well as the rural Dauphin/Lebanon county region.

The I-81 Improvement Strategy is a collaborative effort of the TCRPC and the Metropolitan Planning Organizations of Franklin and Lebanon counties to improve a 100-mile corridor of Interstate 81 from the Mason-Dixon Line through Lebanon County. TCRPC, which includes Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties, is spearheading this effort in coordination with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration.
