Plans and funding for a bridge extending Boot Road over the Brandywine Creek into Johnson-town are moving forward, according to Downingtown borough officials.Borough Manager Stephen Sullins said the project will support the borough's Keystone Opportunity Zone, a tax-free area targeted for industrial or commercial redevelopment.
The bridge also will help the Percheron Group's River Station project, Sullins said. The River Station project is on a 76-acre lot formerly used by the Sonoco Products Co. paper plant and partly in East Caln.
Sullins said borough officials have been working with the developer on the $3.5 million bridge project for five years. The cost to extend Boot Road to the other side of Brandywine Creek is about $4.2 million
