WEST CHESTER (December 6) – State Senator Andy Dinniman today announced that two multimodal transportation infrastructure improvement projects in Exton and Downingtown will receive more than $600,000 in total state funding.

The projects, which were approved for funding today by the Commonwealth Finance Authority, are as follows:

  • $375,000 for West Whiteland Township for the Route 100-Exton Station Multi-Use Trail. The project, a partnership between the township and the Main Street at Exton shopping center, will safely connect pedestrian traffic in and along the busy Route 100 corridor and will incorporate the widening and improvement of the existing sidewalk network, additional crosswalks, and improvements to traffic signal timing. The goal is to create a pedestrian path from the Chester Valley Trail to Exton Station serving Septa and Amtrak. This new link will provide commuters, residents, visitors, shoppers and employees with safe access to the trail, Main Street at Exton, the Exton Square Mall and many other destinations around Exton Crossroads.
  • $235,000 for Downingtown Borough for the Woodbine Road Multi-Use Trail.  The project calls for the installation of streetscapes and a walking and biking trail along Woodbine Road to serve residents and pedestrians and add to the borough’s already-popular and growing trail system.

Funding for the projects comes through Act 89 of 2013, Pennsylvania’s Comprehensive Transportation Funding Plan, which increased transit funding and established dedicated multimodal funding for aviation, passenger rail, rail freight, port and bicycle-pedestrian projects.

Dinniman, who supported Act 89, said the latest projects were another example of the ability of investments in transportation infrastructure to help drive economic growth.

“These trail projects will add to recreational opportunities and the already-excellent quality of life in our communities, which helps attract employers to Chester County and continues to make our region such a great place to call home,” he said.
