Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)

PHOENIXVILLE, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced the completion of an ambitious project at the intersection of Route 23 (Nutt Road) and Starr Street in Phoenixville Borough, Chester County. This initiative, designed to alleviate congestion and bolster both mobility and safety for motorists, represents a proactive approach to addressing traffic concerns in a growing community.

The cornerstone of the project involved the construction of a dedicated left-turn lane on eastbound Route 23 (Nutt Road) leading onto Starr Street. This addition is expected to significantly improve traffic flow by facilitating smoother turn movements for drivers heading north. Simultaneously, the expansion of westbound Route 23 (Nutt Road) at the intersection introduces a new right-turn lane onto Starr Street, further easing the movement of vehicles through this busy junction.

Beyond these key structural changes, the project encompassed a suite of enhancements designed to modernize the intersection. Traffic signals have been updated to the latest standards, ensuring more efficient and safer crossings for both vehicles and pedestrians. The installation of new ADA-compliant curb ramps enhances accessibility, while fresh pavement markings provide clearer guidance for road users. Additionally, upgrades to the bus stop concrete pad ensure a more comfortable and secure waiting area for public transit passengers. The completion of milling and resurfacing work across the roadway promises a smoother ride for all.

Marino Corporation, based in Skippack, Montgomery County, spearheaded the construction efforts as the general contractor. The project, with a budget of $941,319, was funded entirely by federal resources.
