Darby Road will be extended to improve circulation and safety for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists, while better accommodating train operations. The work will also support Paoli redevelopment efforts.
This $35 million second phase of improvements at Paoli would extend Darby Road by constructing a new bridge across the tracks just east of the station building, connecting to Lancaster Avenue. The current crossing—the old, narrow North Valley Road Bridge to the west of the station—would be demolished.
Conceptual planning was completed in 2014 and the project is currently in design. Construction is not yet funded or scheduled.
PennDOT is leading the project.
