 Project Highlights

Purpose

The 3rd Avenue Streetscaping Project is being undertaken to improve ADA accessibility, expand bicycle and pedestrian facilities, improve traffic operations, and enhance aesthetics and safety between the new train station and downtown Coatesville. The project will initiate transit-oriented development, promote area-wide revitalization, and expand parking options for train passengers.
 

​Description

Streetscaping along the four-block stretch of 3rd Avenue between Fleetwood Street at the train station and Lincoln Highway (Route 30) is being completed​ in conjunction with​ the train station development project. In addition to repaving 3rd Avenue, the $1 million streetscaping initiative includes:

As part of the project, the Olivet United Methodist Church parking lot at the corner of 3rd Avenue and Fleetwood Street was improved and will be made available to train passengers​.
 

status​

The streetscape design was completed in February 2017 and construction began in July. By November, most curb, sidewalk, and ramp construction was complete, and the street and church parking lot were repaved. 3rd Avenue completely re-opened to traffic before Thanksgiving 2017. In December contractors installed​ benches, trash receptacles, bicycle racks, and street lights.

Remaining tasks are slated​ to be complete by late 2018. The church parking lot is expected to open to train passengers following completion of line striping, electrical work for lighting and security cameras, and a formalized parking plan by the City.
 ​

Funding Partners

The project is being led by the City of Coatesville Redevelopment Authority with additional funding by PennDOT and the Federal Transit Administration.​
