March 18, 2019 HARRISBURG – Mayor Eric Papenfuse will hold a press conference at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 20 at the MLK Government Center to announce the details of the Vision Zero Action Plan.
The City of Harrisburg kicked off Vision Zero in May of 2018 in response to serious crashes involving pedestrians as well as an overall goal of improving safety on City Streets. The program envisions zero pedestrian and bicycle fatalities by 2030.
Over the course of several months, City specific surveys and meetings were conducted and a task force was created to produce a comprehensive action plan with policy, program and road design recommendations to improve safety for all users of Harrisburg Streets.
Copies of the plan will be distributed at the press conference.
