S.A.V.E. moved aggressively to thwart a PA DOT project to expand highway 41 from a rural two lane road into a major 4 lane expressway. Under it's reasoned leadership, S.A.V.E. enlisted the local community along with leading experts in the field of traffic dynamics to affect a more practical and sustainable solution. Thanks to their tireless efforts, the PA DOT dropped it's plans for a major highway expansion. This victory preserved not only the scenic qualities of a rural road, but preserved a way of life for many agriculturalist who depend upon easy access, lessened the traffic impact on residents as well as saving the state millions of dollars.

Although the organization grew out of an effort to preserve a rural road, S.A.V.E. has expanded into many other areas of preservation. Given adequate resources, this organization could bring about significant changes in land use, grid planning, etc!
