Abstract: In response to local initiative and at the request of the Chester County Planning Commission, the Kennett Area Freight Transportation Study was undertaken to explore freight conflicts in more detail to support economic growth and strengthen livable communities by ensuring safe, efficient movement of goods and people. This study explores strategies to address existing geometric constraints, bridge restrictions, truck movement and routing issues, and to protect or enhance historic and commercial boroughs. This report is divided into five chapters: an introduction, background, existing conditions, recommendations, and next steps.
