I-95 Industrial Park Access Improvement Study

Serving as the prime consultant, LDG provided engineering services to develop alternatives to improve access from the business/industrial parks on Concord Road to I-95 in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. LDG’s services included traffic engineering; safety, congestion, and mobility analysis; corridor improvement concept plans; right-of-way and land use impact analysis; utility impact analysis; and extensive public and stakeholder engagement. Alternatives were studied to provide a more direct route to I-95, reduce trucks and major traffic in residential and school zones, and improve safety and congestion. A traffic simulation model including over 60 intersections and reaching into four municipalities was used to identify where current problems exist and demonstrate effectiveness of proposed alternatives. The draft project purpose and need was developed from current issues/future development information from the traffic model and gathered at numerous stakeholder meetings. The final report findings were presented virtually to elected PennDOT and public officials. Preliminary engineering for some early action projects is underway.
