We have a vision for a pedestrian bridge on the Chester Valley Trail at Route 29 that we are pretty excited about. Some of us are runners and bikers, and the ability to travel from Exton to KOP without a major artery to cross is pretty exciting. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
Some facts about the proposed pedestrian bridge on the Chester Valley Trail over Route 29.
- 140-foot span over Route 29
- 903-foot long structure (including ramps)
- Continuous linkage to wider trail “Circuit” in Delaware Valley
- ADA-Accessible ramps
- Width and structure to support an ambulance or light truck
- As proposed, the signs would feature state of the art technology, which includes the ability to shield the display so that the light is only seen by people who are approaching the sign from the road.
- The brightness of the signs adjusts to ambient light, so that it always provides just the right amount of contrast to be easily seen – both at night and in full sun.
- This is different from the signs of shopping centers and other businesses in the vicinity.
- A recent reading of a sign at one shopping center in the Township measured almost 2,000% brighter in the evening than the proposed Outdoor signs would be, and brighter than the proposed signs on the sunniest day.
