The Henderson Group is working on a road loop at Routes 202 and 1 to accommodate traffic for a 55+ luxury apartment complex and ease congestion in Chadds Ford, writes Holly Herman for Patch.

The pandemic has delayed the final section of the loop.

Brian Coyle, CEO of the Henderson Group, said the road loop will create a more efficient traffic flow in the region.  The area is a popular tourist destination with Longwood Gardens, museums, wineries, and antique shops nearby.

The Chadds Ford Township Planning Commission denied a request in June for a zoning amendment to allow the Greene Station Crossing luxury apartments at the northeast section of the Rts. 1 and 202 intersections. Planners are worried about wetlands, density, and traffic problems.

The proposed apartments would have a pool, a pickleball court, and a dog park on the 20-acre lot, with 12 units built per acre.

Coyle said the Henderson Group will resubmit plans for the apartments for approval as it completes the southwest section of the loop road off of Hillman Drive.

The $7 million road loop project, paid for with private funds and grants, was OK’d by PennDOT.
