The "East Central Avenue Multi-Modal Project” will upgrade the existing sidewalks on the south side of East Central Avenue from Route 252, near Paoli Pointe, all the way west to the Station Square Office Complex. ADA ramps and crosswalks will be provided along East Central Avenue at various locations. The existing roadway travel lanes will be reduced in width by 5-ft on both sides of the roadway to include 5-ft bike lanes.  The East Central Avenue Multi-Modal Project will be completed in 2017.

This project is being completed with the help of the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) Federal-Aid Reimbursement Grant, provided by PennDOT & the DVRPC. Tredyffrin Township was awarded the grant in November of 2014.

*UPDATE* October 16, 2017 - Tuesday, October 17th through Thursday, October 19th, Aqua will temporarily close E. Central Avenue for re-connection of the new waterline, weather permitting.

September 22, 2017 - The sidewalk and curb work on the south side of E. Central Avenue are now complete, with the exception of a small portion of sidewalk still awaiting a utility pole relocation.  As part of their continuing infrastructure improvement program, Aqua Pennsylvania is currently replacing the existing 16-inch and 6-inch cast iron water main. The construction of the new line is expected to be completed in September, and then Aqua will be testing and chlorinating the new service line, as well as making connections to all the various users, which will occur in October. They expect to be finished in early November.  Click here for information. Once they are finished with their work, the Township’s contractor(s) will return to resurface the roadway and finish their work on some additional ADA ramps on five (5) of the north side intersections and the raised crosswalks from those ramps to the sidewalk on the south side of E. Central Avenue.  This work is expected to be completed prior to the end of the year, pending Aqua's timely completion of their project. As always, the Township appreciates your patience & cooperation.
