On October 4, 2016, the Friends of Chester Valley Trail were recognized by the County Commissioners for their significant contributions to the trail's operations and development. They were acknowledged for their most recent and significant accomplishment - contributing 100% of the funds for safety improvements to the Foundry Way intersection located in East Whiteland Township. Signage and line striping were installed and applied to PennDOT standards by an outside contractor at a total improvement cost of $6500.00. The Friends are also funding a traffic study to further improve safety at that intersection.
