Lemoyne bottleneck talks

WGAL 8's McKenna Alexander Reports: 

A stretch of road that has long since been deemed dangerous for bikers and pedestrians may soon undergo major renovation.

On Monday night, PennDOT hosted a public meeting to showcase three alternatives to the Lemoyne Bottleneck on Market Street.

Bikers and pedestrians say this is a step in the right direction.

“I have an old photograph from the historical society, of the Bottleneck, as it was called in the late 1930s, with traffic lined all the way up to Third Street, to the light at Third and Market, so it never changed,” said nearby resident Michael Kostukovich.

The Bottleneck, or the area that connects Lemoyne to the Market Street bridge, holds quite the reputation.

"It's been deteriorating, the sidewalks there are narrow, they're not very well maintained. In some cases, there's barely enough room for a single person to get through there, " said Nick Malawskey, member of Bike Harrisburg.

As one of just two non-motorized paths to Harrisburg, bikers and pedestrians have been risking their commute to Harrisburg for decades.
