Good afternoon,


We have some exciting news to share as we continue to advance development of Landscapes3, the next comprehensive plan for the county, with the help of our partners, stakeholders, and the public. As part of this process, we released a public survey today to gather additional input about the plan from county residents and anyone interested in the future of Chester County. The survey seeks to gather feedback on several issues, including growth, open space and environment, sense of place, modern infrastructure, transportation, the economy, healthy lifestyles, and housing options.


We hope you will help us spread the word about the survey. Municipalities are key partners in the comprehensive plan, and we understand their critical role in land use management. The county plan provides broad growth management guidance, addresses issues that transcend local municipal boundaries, and directs county government action.

Below you will find sample language about Landscapes3 and the survey for your website, social media accounts, and newsletter. In addition, you will receive some promotional items in the mail that you can display in a public location. If your municipality desires a presentation at a municipal public meeting regarding the comprehensive plan update, please let me know.


We’ll be reaching out to you again in the late summer to let you know when the Landscapes3 Steering Committee will meet in the fall. With your assistance, we can continue to make Chester County a great place to live, work, and connect. If you have any questions about the partner toolkit below, please contact Communications Specialist Danielle Lynch at dlynch@chesco.org or 610-344-6285. Thank you for your consideration.


Sincerely,

Brian

PennDOT Reopens Green Valley Road Bridge over Brandywine Creek in Newlin Township, Chester County

The bridge has been closed since May 2016 following an inspection that detected severe structural deterioration of the steel beams.

 

Chester County maintenance crews rehabilitated the bridge deck and beams; resurfaced the roadway; and installed new guide rail in order to reopen the structure to vehicles weighing 16 tons or less.

 

The Green Valley Road bridge was built in 1937. It is 13 feet long, 18.5 feet wide and carries about 100 vehicle a day.

Brandywine Creek Road to be Restricted to Eastbound Traffic Only in Newlin Township, Chester County

 

King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that Brandywine Creek Road will be closed between Green Valley Road and Powell Road in Newlin Township, Chester County, tomorrow March 2, from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for the installation of concrete barrier to close this section of the road to westbound traffic.

 

During the operation, Brandywine Creek Road through traffic will be detoured over Strasburg Road and Mortonville Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

 

Once the concrete barrier is installed, Brandywine Creek Road will remain closed indefinitely to westbound traffic, which will continue to follow the posted detour. Brandywine Creek Road will remain open to eastbound travelers.

 

The one-way pattern is being implemented due to the instability of the slope along Brandywine Creek Road. PennDOT is preliminarily designing a project to stabilize the slope.

 

Motorists should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through the work zone.

 

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.
