No one likes sitting in traffic, especially traffic caused by construction. GVF strives to make commutes a little less stressful by providing information so that commuters understand what to expect on their way to work.
Highway Improvement Projects
US 202 Improvement Projects
Construction is underway on US 202 Section 300 in Chester County and US 202 Section 500 "Markley Street" through Norristown. Stay informed of all the projects and don't get caught in the traffic. For more information on this project, visit us202.com.
US 422 Improvement Projects
US 422 is one of the region's most congested highways. Daily back-ups give the region's commuters a ride to work that is longer than necessary. Projects are planned to ease traffic along the corridor over the next few years. Stay informed to avoid unnecessary delays. For more information on this project, visit 422improvements.com.
Local Roadway Improvement Projects
Greeenwood Ave Bridge Replacement
Many of the bridges in Pennsylvania are over fifty years old and in dire need of replacement. The Greenwood Ave bridge over the Jenkintown SEPTA station is no exception. PennDOT will be replacing the bridge, but it will require a complete shutdown of Greenwood Ave. Learn more about the project, and avoid any delay. For more information on this project, visit greenwood.gvftma.info.
Paoli Roadway Design
Lancaster Pike (US 30) in the Paoli neighborhood of Tredyffrin Township, Chester County is a very congested section of this road. The Paoli train station, one of the busiest in the SEPTA regional rail system, coupled with numerous retail shopping centers have made Paoli a difficult area to navigate by any mode of travel. Tredyffrin Township, in partnership with PennDOT, will undergo a design project to provide a vision of Paoli that accommodates all modes of travel, and eases congestion. Learn more about this project, and how it will transform Paoli into a true multi-modal hub. For more information on this project, visit paolionthemove.org.
Transit Improvement Projects
Norristown High Speed Line Extension to King of Prussia
The Norristown High Speed connects the 69th Street Station to the Norristown Transportation Center through many of Philadelphia's suburban Main Line communities. SEPTA is moving forward with exploring the feasibility of extending the High Speed Line to the King of Prussia Mall and the King of Prussia Business District. When completed, this project will connect employees from their homes to their work via a unique and efficient mode of transit. For more information on this project, visit kingofprussiarail.com.
Paoli Station Design Project
The Paoli SEPTA/Amtrak station is one of the busiest rail stations in suburban Philadelphia. Despite its high use, the station is ill-equipped to handle the volume of rail and bus passengers that use the station daily. Available parking, along with low level platforms and an antiquated station are all scheduled to be drastically improved in the coming years. SEPTA has begun the design process, and will eventually replace the station with a modern multi-modal transit facility capable of handling the volume of passengers using transit.

Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trails Projects
Schuylkill River Trail
The Schuylkill River Trail extends from Philadelphia to Pottsville and forms the spine of the greater Philadelphia bike trail network. From Manayunk to Phoenixville, riders can ride on a paved, off-road trail. West from Phoenixville, the trail is a patchwork of segments; some paved, some packed gravel, mostly disconnected. GVF is working with Chester and Montgomery County Planning Commissions, municipal governments, and PennDOT to secure funding to complete the trail from Phoenixville to Pottstown.
Chester Valley Trail
The Chester Valley Trail is the newest off-road trail to be developed in greater Philadelphia. In 2010, Chester County opened the first four mile segment that extended from PA 29 in Great Valley to Valley Creek Boulevard in Exton. The trail construction will continue this spring to connect Great Valley to King of Prussia via a paved, off-road trail. Portions of the trail were constructed when
