Worcester Township received a $700,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to design significant improvements to Valley Forge Road, between the intersection with Woodlyn Avenue and the intersection of Township Line Road and Stump Hall Road. In specific, these improvements include:
• widening this portion of Valley Forge Road to create a center-turn lane;
• creating left-turn lanes onto Township Line Road and Stump Hall Road;
• installing a new traffic signal at Woodlyn Avenue, and creating a left-turn lane onto Woodlyn Avenue;
• creating separate right and left-turn lanes exiting Woodlyn Avenue; and,
• upgrading the existing traffic signals at Water Street Road and Township Line Road/Stump Hall Road.
The improvements will enhance safety along Valley Forge Road, which is one of the heaviest-travelled roadways in our community. In addition, the improvements will allow vehicles to travel this roadway as efficiently as possible.
The design work for Valley Forge Road Corridor Improvement Project has been underway for the past year and now we are ready to share the preliminary design. To view this plan, please click here.
It is important to note that, at this time, this project involves improvement design only. After the plan of improvements is designed and approved by PennDOT (Valley Forge Road is a State-owned road), the Township will seek additional Federal, State and County dollars for construction. Construction is estimated to cost $12 million.
Any questions regarding this project, please contact the Township at (610) 584-1410.
