Gateways and Greenways Report

Gateways and Greenways in Erie, Pennsylvania. A Great Lake Community

Erie’s character or identity is emerging and it is capitalizing on “Lake Erie” as a common theme connecting a range of important projects such as the Seaway Trail, Bayfront redevelopment, East Side Access Highway (ESAH) and other infrastructure projects.

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT)’s District 1-0, sponsored a workshop of Erie’s community leaders to seek their collaboration on a plan to enhance Erie’s “Gateways and Greenways.” This report is a culmination of that effort and it proposes themes, prototypes, and strategies that can be applied to future transportation projects, visitor sites and development initiatives.
