Big improvements are coming to First Avenue! Over the past year, a multi-use pathway was installed beginning at Moore Road and extending east on either side of First Avenue.
Vibrant landscaping, accessible pathways and seating areas are some notable features. Solar-powered pedestrian lighting, along with new trash receptacles provide a clean and safe environment for visitors year round.
The Linear Park design was developed by Ground Reconsidered with engineering provided by Pennoni in King of Prussia. Right of way clearance and public access easements were coordinated by legal firm Unruh Turner Burke & Frees.
After an extensive plan review and right-of-way clearance process, five PennDOT-approved construction firms submitted bids to construct the multimodal path on 9 parcels along First Avenue. Marino Corporation submitted the winning bid at just under $2.2M. Construction Inspection Services will be provided by engineering firm RK&K with offices on American Avenue in KOP.
Phase One of the Linear Park Project is managed by King of Prussia District and funded through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund and the US Department of Transportation’s Transportation Infrastructure Investment Fund. Additional funding is provided by King of Prussia District and Montgomery County’s Montco 2040 Implementation grant program.
Phase Two of the Linear Park Project will begin later this year.
