Tredyffrin Township could soon become home to not just one new Wawa but two, writes Caroline O’Halloran for SAVVY Main Line.
The two proposed locations are at Old Eagle School and Swedesford roads and at Cassatt and Swedesford roads.
According to Tredyffrin Board of Supervisors Chair Julie Gosse, the Old Eagle School project is further along. Township officials have already seen a sketch plan and suggested several revisions relating to parking, traffic flow, and impervious surface requirements.
“It’s a tricky corner,” said Gosse. “We asked that they meet with our traffic committee and PennDOT. We sent them back to the drawing board several times. If they can get the traffic, stormwater, and parking to work within our rules, it could be good location.”
The other project is still in its very early stages and has bigger obstacles to overcome, said Gosse.
Its proposed site is in an area already served by two gas stations. There are also mature “heritage” trees on the property that are important for stormwater control.
