Mission: S.A.V.E. is a non-profit community group whose aim is to improve the safety of PA 41 and other area roads for all users while minimizing direct and secondary impacts from transportation projects and maximizing conservation potential in the region. Through public outreach, educational programs, and technical assistance, S.A.V.E. advocates for policies and projects that balance transportation planning with comprehensive land use goals including the preservation of the natural and historic resources, agricultural lands, watersheds, and environmentally sensitive open space of the region.
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.
