The Third Avenue Streetscape Project, the first phase of revitalization work related to the new Coatesville Train Station, has received final PennDOT approval and is out to bid.

Design work is complete on the streetscape project, and bids are expected in by the end of the month. The project will be managed by the Coatesville Redevelopment Authority, under the supervision and guidance of PennDOT.

“We are getting ready to punch the ticket on work related to the new Coatesville Train Station,” said State Senator Andy Dinniman, who serves on the Senate Transportation Committee. “I know city residents and those throughout the Coatesville region are eager to see the revitalization get rolling, and this announcement marks a major step forward.”

The streetscape project aims to transform Third Avenue as a gateway into the city from the new train station. It will include the repaving of and significant improvements to the nearby parking lot of Mount Olivet United Methodist Church, which will be available to rail riders under an agreement being ironed out with the church.

The initial design work on the realignment of the station’s location on Fleetwood Street is now complete, along with plans for commuter and bus access. Engineers and planners are conducting a review of conceptual designs, and offering updates on transit-oriented development projects related to the new train station.

The Coatesville announcement comes on the heels of the groundbreaking of the first phase of the Paoli Train Station Project.
