Master Plan for U.S. 422 Corridor to be Unveiled Friday - Vindicator


A master plan for the U.S. Route 422 corridor will be unveiled at 2 p.m. Friday.The event will take place at a cul-de-sac adjacent to 1242 Ada St., Youngstown, along the corridor.

The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber, Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. and the Trumbull County Planning Commission hired Interface Studio, a Philadelphia-based urban-design and planning firm, for $150,000 to develop a plan for the portion of the corridor that encompasses 3,500 acres, 220 businesses and 8,500 residents.

That area is bounded on the north by Liberty Street, state Route 711 and state Route 193 on the east, Interstate 680 on the south, and Meridian Road on the west. It includes portions of Youngstown, Girard and Liberty.

It took Interface about a year to complete the plan. The three partnering organizations will discuss the plan’s highlights and steps to implement the recommendations Friday.

The plan calls for an increase in industrial areas, adding sidewalks, bike paths, medians and more lighting, as well as stabilizing residential areas.
