One interesting modification of the plan is that the new section of trail will not be paved, at least for now. So the Chester County segment will look much more like the Thun Trail section of the SRT in Berks County, like this recently completed segment in Birdsboro.
As previously reported a section of the Chester Valley Trail will be built concurrently. The CV Trail will be paved and the county hopes for developer cooperation for a total of 3.9 of construction to be completed by the summer of 2010. The rest of the trail from Route 29 to the Schuylkill Trail is scheduled to be built in 2011.
