Identified in the Township’s Traffic Impact Fee Capital Improvement Plan, this project seeks to relieve traffic around the historic Ship Inn.  With the location of the historic Ship Inn so close to the road, traditional improvements would not be feasible.  Therefore, TPD is designing a pair of one-way roadways around the Ship Inn to balance traffic flow and congestion in the area.  This designed and approved through PennDOT’s Highway Occupancy Permit (HOP) program, and will be constructed partially through a PennDOT Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF) Grant
