As local community members, we care deeply about the level and flow of traffic through our area. We are committed to making necessary traffic improvements around the Shoppes at Belmont. The Project will include extensive roadway improvements and the addition of sidewalks and bicycle lanes along Fruitville Pike. The improvements proposed for this Project will help alleviate current traffic and avoid additional congestion.
We will be adding bicycle and walking paths through the Belmont property, plus pedestrian access to Glen Moore Circle, which will tie into Manheim Township’s pedestrian trail system. There will be no vehicular connection between the Belmont development and the Glen Moore Circle community.
A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Fruitville Pike and the southern entrance to the Shoppes at Belmont, where Whole Foods will be. The plan includes providing northbound left and right turn lanes and southbound left and right turn lanes on Fruitville Pike as well as constructing additional lanes to make it easier for motorists to travel between Route 30 and Lancaster City.
The northern entrance on Fruitville Pike and Red Rose Commons Driveway will be provided with a dual southbound left turn lane, a dual northbound left turn lane, and an additional northbound thru lane, a northbound right turn lane, and an eastbound right turn lane at the Red Rose Commons Driveway.
Traffic improvements are scheduled to be complete by fall 2017; months before any stores open.
Manbel Devco will also be constructing a brick enclosed bus shelter with a cupola on top that matches the one of the David Meyer house across the street. Red Rose Transit Authority has agreed to drop off and pick up riders inside the Shoppes at Belmont, rather than on Fruitville Pike.
Last but certainly not least, a multi-million-dollar contribution has been made to Manheim Township for traffic improvements in the Community.
