Roundabouts are here and more are coming. Are you prepared?
The roundabout at U.S. 222 and PA 662 in Richmond Township has been a major success in reducing congestion and improving safety. Following up on that success, two roundabouts on either side of the Village of Oley at the intersections of PA 73 and PA 662 are scheduled to be completed by October 2020. The roundabout at the eastern intersection of PA 73 and PA 662 is currently open. Roundabouts are also under construction in Maidencreek Township at the intersections of U.S. 222 and Tamarack/Genesis Drive and U.S. 222 and Schaeffer Road. These are estimated to be completed by November 2022. Bids are now scheduled to be opened in February 2020 on another project to place a roundabout at U.S. 222 and PA 863/Schantz Road in Lehigh County just across the Berks County line.

The Berks County Planning Commission serves as the area-wide planning organization for Berks County. The Commission provides a regional blueprint for land use, transportation and community facilities. It assists local units of government with development and preservation activities and provides guidance to the Berks County Board of Commissioners and other departments of county government. The Commission and its professional staff also serve as community advisors for modern planning practices and advocates for sound regional growth management. Finally, since the Commission is involved with a range of activities with a number of partners, it plays a very important coordinating role in community development issues and projects.
