At the request of the Chester County Planning Commission, the Chester County Freight Plan was undertaken by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission’s (DVRPC) Freight Program with the guidance of a Study Advisory Committee. The purpose was to advance objectives within the Prosper and Connect goal areas of Landscapes3 Comprehensive Plan. This plan documents an overview of roadway infrastructure, railway infrastructure, and current conditions analysis; identification of key freight-generating industries and their presence in the county; a summary of commodities and modal movement in the county; industrial development patterns and trends; and overview of freight activity at each of the seven identified freight centers. It also contains an Action Plan that establishes a future vision for freight in the county centered around six goals: Safety; Efficiency; Preservation and Identity; Environmental; Economic Development; and Community and Place.
