Park Road Trail Project Update

CHESTER SPRINGS, PA – Residents of Upper Uwchlan Township are probably aware that the Township has been working for many years to design and engineer Phase IV of the Park Road Trail, a trail segment that will connect Hickory Park with Marsh Creek State Park. This project also includes a complete re-construction of Park Road, from Moore Road to the State Park. Upper Uwchlan Township, in 2017, re-assigned the project to McMahon Associates and tasked McMahon personnel with finalizing project design, engineering, and permitting. Township and McMahon Associates personnel, working with PennDOT and the DVRPC, have made progress on final design and engineering and offer the following update.


Tasks Completed in 2017

  • Re-surveyed project scope and boundaries, as necessary
  • Obtained preliminary environmental clearances
  • Revised utility re-location plans and began coordination with utility companies
  • Finalized right-of-way plans and submitted for final review

Next Steps

  • Completion of right-of-way acquisition
  • Final design and permitting
  • Construction  

The Township is optimistic that the Park Road re-construction and trail project will move through the final review process and into the construction phase in 2018. General project plans in PDF format are available at the link below; a hard copy display is available at the Township building.
