Geographic Area Covered: Devon, Easttown Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania

Abstract: The Devon Station Multimodal Access Study developed concepts to improve walking and biking access to Devon Station, on SEPTA’s Paoli/Thorndale Regional Rail line. It also recommends land use strategies that complement the rail facility. Access to the station and mobility in the larger station area are currently constrained by an inconsistent sidewalk network, challenging intersections and driveways, and a lack of bicycle facilities. Planning improvements will require ongoing coordination between Easttown Township, SEPTA, Chester County, PennDOT, and other partners. Within the station footprint, recommendations include better organization of vehicle paths, safe pedestrian and bicycle paths, and preservation of the historic building. On adjacent land and streets, a TOD framework that concentrates new development around Devon Station, while also expanding safe multimodal facilities, can enable local residents and workers to walk, bike, or take mass transit more often. The DVRPC team also pinpointed four focus areas in which to prioritize improvements that target the most conspicuous safety and access issues: the station’s south parking lot, N. Waterloo Road, Lancaster Avenue, and Berkley Road.
