Phase 3 is a Go: West Whiteland Approves Chester Valley Trail
The township supervisors approved a series of measures in favor of the county trail's extension toward Exton.
Fans of the Chester Valley Trail will be happy to hear that West Whiteland Township recently issued a series of approvals, paving the way for the trail's Phase III.
Township manager "Mac" Cotter emailed a synopsis of the Feb. 27 board meeting:
The Board approved the Developer Agreement, Storm Water Management Facilities Maintenance Agreement, Landscape Restrictive Covenant, and the Reimbursement and Indemnification Agreement, all in support of the approved CVT Phase III land development plan (approved in the fall of 2012).
The board also agreed to ask PennDOT for a traffic control device that would allow trail users to safely cross Lincoln Highway.
The crossing would be located in the section of the trail depicted in orange in the attached map. Cotter provided the exact location:
Should the application be approved, the crossing will be east of the intersection of Tabas Lane and Lincoln Highway, near the former Exton Hotel property.
The Chester County Parks Department keeps a log of trail construction updates and other notes on its website.
