The Aston Township StreetScape Project is about to get underway along a 0.8-mile stretch of Pennell Road (SR 0452) between Concord Road (SR 3007) and Duttons Mill Road (SR 3020). The work will include sidewalk and curb ramp installation/improvements, pedestrian level lighting, landscaping, and landscaped center medians. The improvements will contribute to increased mass transit ridership and economic development by creating a pedestrian-friendly environment and connecting a variety of land uses including residential, commercial, office, institutional and recreational. The improvements implemented along Pennell Road will serve as guidelines to implement similar improvements along Concord Road and Duttons Mill Road as future projects.
The Township was awarded a $1 million grant from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) which it received last fall.
