Walkable Chadds Ford enters fundraising phase

Walkable Chadds Ford enters fundraising phase
Peter Simone of the Norristown-based Simone Collins landscaper architecture firm recently told Chadds Ford Township supervisors that the Walkable Chadds Ford project is taking shape and it’s time to look for money. Simone Collins has been the project consultant since the program’s inception in 2014. The overall goal of the plan is to increase pedestrian, bicycle and motor vehicle safety in the village area, and to boost local businesses. The first phase of the project would establish crosswalks, sidewalks and trails from the Battlefield Park and township building area at Ring Road, down to North Creek Road. A four-way crosswalk to be added at Station Way Road, Route 1 and North Creek Road would require easements from three businesses properties at the intersection. Simone said that could be done for about $1.75 million that could be funded through grants without any local money being used. Of that amount, $1 million could come from a Transportation Alternate Program (TAP) grant and the other $750,000 could come from two other grants. A second phase of the program would add a trail between Hank’s Place and the Chadds Ford Historical Society, a bike and pedestrian path along Route 1 between Station Way Road in Chadds Ford and Fairville Road in Pennsbury, and another pedestrian crossing from Fairville across Route 1 to Chadds Ford Elementary School.
