Geographic Area Covered: East Whiteland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania
Abstract: This report provides a comprehensive inventory and assessment of the existing conditions to identify feasible and viable locations for a new Regional Rail station in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, PA. A new train station is a cornerstone of the township’s revitalization efforts for Route 30 in the Village of Frazer, and supports Chester County’s commitment to expanding public transit options. Various factors were considered when identifying feasible and viable locations for a new station. Those considerations included existing conditions, railroad requirements, station program elements, and train service. Taking these, and additional factors, into consideration, two viable train station sites were identified for further evaluation: Immaculata Station Site and Three Tun Station Site. Station concept plans, access and circulation improvements, operations and service, ridership forecasts, and cost estimates were developed for both sites. This project was sponsored by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and the work was completed by McMahon Associates, Inc., Michael Baker International, Sowinski Sullivan Architects, Thomas Comitta Associates, Inc. and IBI Group.
