Phase I of this report documents existing conditions and recommends local land use and access management strategies for the communities along the Routes 3 and 252 corridors in Delaware County. Future growth pressure and redevelopment opportunities coupled with traffic congestion problems make this area ripe for the employment of access management techniques. This study recommends land use control measures and proactive collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to maintain or improve mobility in the face of increased future population. This study also seeks to establish aesthetic consistency along the corridor through the modification of land use planning documents and local ordinances.

Geographic Area Covered: Marple, Newtown and Edgmont Townships, Delaware County, Pennsylvania

Key Words: Land use, transportation, access management, transportation and land use linkage, multimunicipal planning, zoning, implementation
