 Project Highlights

Purpose

​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.
 

​Description

This $35 million second phase of improvements at Paoli will extend Darby Road by constructing a new bridge across the tracks just east of the station building, connecting to Lancaster Avenue. The northwest and northeast parking areas and jitney routes will be combined, as shown on ​the ​ site plan. The current crossing—the old, narrow North Valley Road Bridge to the west of the station—will be demolished.
 

status

Conceptual planning was completed in 2014 and the project is currently in design. Five alternatives for roadway improvements near the station were introduced at a March 2017 open house (see ​Alternatives A-E under Documents). PennDOT is in the process of refining and selecting a preferred alternative. Construction of the Darby Road Extension is expected to begin in late 2019 or early 2020.
 

Funding Partners

PennDOT is leading the project.​
