Improvements will include pedestrian improvements such as new curbs and sidewalks, crosswalks, ADA ramps, pedestrian signals, pedestrian-scale street lights, and a landscaped plaza, as well as transportation improvements such as new traffic signals, improved ingress/egress and circulation patterns. The construction plans can be viewed online: 2019 Elkins Park West Phase I Streetscape Improvement Project Plans.

This construction project is being funded in part by a $1,875,000 grant through the Federal Highway Administration's Transportation Alternatives Program, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

This project is the realization of parts of two planning efforts regarding the Elkins Park West Commercial District:
2011 Elkins Park West Streetscape Traffic Calming Plan Presentation
2000 Elkins Park West Commercial District Enhancement Plan

Similar improvements have been completed, in multiple stages, in Glenside as a result of the 2000 Glenside Commercial District Enhancement Plan.
