The Downingtown Area in Central Chester County has experienced significant growth in recent years, along with a corresponding increase in traffic congestion. Several large private developments are planned, which will create additional transportation challenges. Furthermore, the Downingtown Train Station is set to be relocated, which will impact mobility in the surrounding area. The project team examined non- vehicular approaches to mitigate traffic congestion in the Downingtown Area, by improving multimodal accessibility throughout the area and reducing impacts from stormwater runoff. Bicycle network improvements were recommended throughout the Borough of Downingtown to create safer connections to trails and transit, reducing reliance on personal vehicles. Since stormwater runoff has the potential to negatively impact transportation when it accumulates on roadways and sidewalks, intersections were analyzed for stormwater runoff potential and prioritized for stormwater control recommendations.
