– Rep. John Lawrence (R-Chester/Lancaster) and Sen. Carolyn Comitta (D-Chester) this week announced West Nottingham Township will receive $842,000 in state funding to support much-needed infrastructure improvements at the intersection of Pennsylvania Route 272 and Baltimore Pike.
The project, which is funded through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund, calls for upgrading the main signalized intersection of Route 272 (Christine Road) and Baltimore Pike in Nottingham, including adding a left-turn lane for eastbound Route 272 and a right-turn lane for southbound Baltimore Pike.
“This intersection is a crossroads of southwestern Chester County, and it hasn’t seen major improvement for decades,” said Lawrence. “For the last few years, I have worked with the township supervisors, local property owners, and other elected officials to help make the Nottingham village intersection project a reality, and today’s announcement is a culmination of this team-based approach. Once completed, the improved intersection will serve the community for many years to come.”
“Investments in our transportation infrastructure and key intersections, like this one, are important to both enhancing safety on our roadways and driving economic growth in our region,” Comitta said. “I look forward to continuing to work with local municipalities and my legislative colleagues to support the needs of communities like West Nottingham and others across Chester County.”
“West Nottingham Township is grateful for the continued support of our elected officials in helping to move this project forward,” said Tiffany Bell, who chairs the West Nottingham Township Board of Supervisors. “Improvements in Nottingham village have been a priority for many years, and this significant funding will help take the intersection project from the drawing board to reality for our community.”
The nearly $1.2 million West Nottingham intersection project comes as part of four transportation projects in Chester County set to receive more than $6.2 million in support through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund grant program.
The next round of Multimodal grant applications will open in September. For more information about the program, visit penndot.gov
