Route 29 slip ramp set to begin construction in March 2011

Penndot and Chester County Commissioners announced recently that the slip ramp proposed for Route 29 will begin construction in March 2011. This moves forward the plan to make regional improvements.

The ramp has been backed all along by the Chester County Commissioners along with the support of the Paoli Transit Center, improvements to route 202 and the Chester Valley Trail.

The slip ramp priced at $83 million has been planned since 1995 and should be completed by Spring 2012. The ramp will connect Route 29 to the PA turnpike and provide access to and from the new Wegmans, and business parks in the area like Great Valley Corporate Center, The Commons at Great Valley, Atwater and other bsuiness districts in Malvern and Paoli. It will help to reduce the large numbers of cars currently travelling between the Downingtown Turnpike exit and Valley Forge. However, it will only be accessible to users of E-Zpass.

             Chester County is the first county in Pennsylvania to initiate a strategic planning process. Established by William Penn as one of Pennsylvania's three original counties, Chester County has been named by as one of America's best places to raise a family and is ranked the healthiest county in Pennsylvania by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
