Project to Improve Safety Along High Street

High Street Project


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is planning engineering design on a project to improve safety along High Street in West Chester, Chester County.

The proposed project features several safety enhancements at intersections along High Street between Rosedale Avenue and Miner Street, including upgrading existing traffic signals, installing new traffic signals at University Avenue and Sharpless Street, installing pedestrian pushbuttons at signalized intersections, and installing curb extensions, high visibility crosswalks and new LED lighting at select intersections.

As part of the PennDOT’s public outreach program, the department and its project design firm, HNTB Corporation, cordially invites you or your designated representative(s) to attend a Public Officials Briefing for this transportation improvement project. The briefing will be held virtually on Tuesday, November 29th, 2022, at 2:00 PM through Microsoft Teams. Members of PennDOT’s design team will present information on the proposed project and will be available to answer questions and gather feedback from the public.

Following this briefing, the department will hold a virtual Public Meeting on Tuesday, December 6, beginning at 6:00 PM to inform and update citizens on the status of this safety improvement project and address their questions and concerns.

For more information, and for instructions on how to attend the virtual meeting, please visit the PennDOT’s Public Meetings page at the following link and click on “Chester County” then “High Street”:
