TOLL BROTHERS SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT

During their Regular Meeting on December 12, 2017, the Board of Supervisors approved a settlement agreement with Toll PA VI, L.P. for the development of the Tigue Farm (Tigue Road and Lenape Road) to be known as “Darlington Ridge at West Chester.”  Minutes from this meeting are available on the Board and Commissions page.  The next phase of the development will involve submission of land development plans and Township review during 2018. This application may be prominent on the Township Planning Commission agenda during 2018.

 

VALLEY CREEK ROAD BRIDGE

On December 7, the Township Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to replace the Valley Creek Road Bridge over Broad Run.   The current bridge, believed to be circa early 1900’s, will be replaced with a similar one-lane, two-way bridge at the same location, in an effort to preserve the scenic characteristics of the area.  The Township expects the design, permitting and construction process to take approximately one year to complete.  In the interim, the bridge will remain closed and all current detours will remain in effect.

The Township staff immediately began work on the bridge replacement design the day following the decision of the Board with hopes of expediting the replacement process to the extent possible.  The staff will be providing monthly updates to its media outlets (website, Facebook page and newsletter) to keep our residents abreast of the project progress.  We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we embark on this exciting project!

 

TRAFFIC MONITORING

Between October 2017 – February 2018 PennDOT will use Tri-State Traffic Data Inc. to collect traffic data on municipally owned roads within Chester County. The data will be utilized to prioritize locations for potential safety improvements. The traffic counters are not being set for any road project or speed trap.
