PennDOT to hold Route 926 Bridge forum

The long-awaited replacement of the Route 926 Bridge will be the subject of a PennDOT open house and presentation on Wednesday, March 30.

PennDOT is urging the public to attend and provide input on the project, which includes associated roadway improvements in Birmingham and Pocopson townships, a PennDOT notice said. The program will be held at Pocopson Elementary School, 1105 Pocopson Road, West Chester, Pa., 19382.

The purpose of the meeting is to update the public and local communities on the current design of this transportation improvement project and the results of recent environmental studies. The meeting will consist of a plans display, a brief presentation, and a question-and-answer period.

Citizens will have an opportunity to meet and discuss the bridge and roadway improvement project with PennDOT’s design team. “Please plan to attend this informative meeting,” the PennDOT notice said.

The program will begin with an open house at 5:30 p.m., where attendees can circulate among the various subject displays. The open house will be followed by an hour long presentation from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., and the session will conclude with a Q&A from 7 to 7:30 p.m., PennDOT said.
