In November 2019, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) released the final Kennett Area Freight Transportation Study. This 2019 work program item investigated a six municipality study area in and around Kennett for ways to minimize the community impacts of freight movements and increase public safety.
The study recommends implementation of the following:
- Traffic Calming Measures – Gateway treatments and high visibility pedestrian crossings to increase safety within the village environments
- Truck Route Development – to keep trucks where they belong should be developed by a multijurisdictional working group
- Improved Wayfinding and Signage – improvements to existing signage clarity, visibility, and location along with new, consistent signage.
The document contains a great inventory of traffic data and economic generators within the study area, particularly with the mushroom industry.
