Park Road Trail Construction to Begin in Spring 2019

CHESTER SPRINGS, PA – Construction on the long-awaited Park Road Trail Project is slated to begin in mid-March 2019. The project consists of a road re-construction and the installation of 4,400 linear feet (0.83 miles) of a 6-foot wide pedestrian trail along Park Road, from Hickory Park (east of Moore Road) to Marsh Creek State Park. The project contractor is Allan Myers, LP. 

The trail will consist of pervious asphalt pavement with concrete ADA compliant curb ramps at intersections, major driveways, and at mid-block crossings. The pedestrian trail will be separated from the roadway by a 2-foot wide grass strip in curbed areas and a 5-foot wide grass buffer zone in non-curbed areas. 

Roadway re-construction will also occur between Hickory Park (east of Moore Road) and Marsh Creek State Park. Roadway re-construction will include standardizing the cartway width to 26’ which will include one 12-foot eastbound curbed lane and one 10-foot westbound lane with a 4-foot shoulder, adjusting the crown of the roadway, new stormwater infrastructure and resurfacing the roadway. 

Residents and motorists will soon see pre-construction activities on Park Road which will include survey crews, tree clearing, utility stakeout, and utility pole re-location. Once construction begins, motorists in the area should use caution in and around the construction zone and allow extra time to get to your destination due to delays during periods requiring lane restrictions. Construction is expected to be completed by October 31, 2019. Questions about the project can be directed to Upper Uwchlan Township at 610-458-9400.
