Given the health mandates put in place by Governor Wolf related to COVID-19, the Bridgeport Crossroads Steering Committee has decided to postpone the April 1st Open House that was scheduled to occur at the Harrisburg Area Community College – Lancaster Campus. We are working to identify alternative ways to get community input that may include rescheduling the open house and/or other forms of online community engagement.

In the meantime, please take our online Transportation Alternatives Survey and let us know what improvements are your highest priorities for enhancements to the roadways, sidewalks, crosswalks, trails, and land uses throughout the Bridgeport, Lancaster area.

We will communicate any updates about future meetings via 1) this web site, 2) emails to everyone who joins the Project Updates email list and 3) flyers posted in public places throughout the Bridgeport area. We appreciate your participation in this planning process to make Bridgeport a better place to live, work, and play.


The Bridgeport Crossroads Steering Committee


Welcome to Bridgeport Crossroads, a community planning website for the Bridgeport Transportation and Land Use Study. This is a planning initiative with a goal to enhance walkability, transportation, transit choices and neighborhood character within the Bridgeport area of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The project is a collaboration between East Lampeter Township, West Lampeter Township, Lancaster Township and the City of Lancaster, with the support of the County of Lancaster and PennDOT. This website is here to provide you with current information about this study and provide ways for you to share your ideas about how to improve Bridgeport as a place to live, work, play and shop. Bridgeport Crossroads will result in a master plan and four conceptual designs to improve streets, civic spaces, and transportation alternatives in Bridgeport. The project study area encompasses 3.2 square miles located within four municipalities: East Lampeter Township, West Lampeter Township, Lancaster Township and the City of Lancaster.

Currently, many of the roadways in the area experience traffic congestion, especially those at the crossroads of Lincoln Highway, Old Philadelphia Pike, Lampeter Rd and Pitney Road. Many of the roadways offer limited sidewalks, crosswalks, and are congested with commercial driveways, making it difficult for both pedestrians and vehicles to navigate the area safely. Although the area offers many trails and some shoulders to accommodate buggies, many of these accessways are too narrow and poorly linked to destinations and neighborhoods. Since Bridgeport is located within four municipalities and three school districts, this community has multiple and sometimes contradictory zoning and street design standards that make it difficult to create and implement planning initiatives.

This transportation and land use study seeks to gather citizen, commuter, business and municipal leader opinions while creating implementation strategies that will enhance the sense of place and transportation networks in Bridgeport. Through online surveys and community meetings, the community is given a voice to guide the design team in the creation of strategies and conceptual designs to improve streets, sidewalks, crosswalks and trails. Outcomes are likely to address the design and coordination of travel lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes, crosswalks, bus transit services and architectural and landscape design standards to accomplish the project goals for Bridgeport.
