King of Prussia – A series of travel restrictions are scheduled on Route 202 in West Goshen Township, Chester County, next week for road and ramp construction between the Route 100 and High Street in West Goshen and Westtown townships, Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.

On Monday through Saturday (May 2-7) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Route 202’s northbound and southbound right shoulder will be restricted from High Street to Route 100 for the installation of conduit for Intelligent Transportation System components.

On Tuesday through Thursday (May 3-5) from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., southbound Route 202 will be reduced to one lane between the Route 100 and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) interchanges for saw cutting the concrete pavement.

From 8 p.m. Friday, May 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, May 8, southbound Route 202 will be reduced to one lane between the Route 100 and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) interchanges for concrete pavement removal and replacement.

From 8 p.m. Friday, May 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, May 8, the Paoli Pike on-ramp to Route 202 North will be closed and detoured for shoulder reconstruction. The posted detour will take Paoli Pike traffic south on Route 202 to the Route 3 (West Chester Pike) Interchange, where drivers will then access the on-ramp to Route 202 North.

Motorists are advised to allow additional time to travel on Route 202 during weeknights and weekends because backups and delays will occur.

This work is part of PennDOT’s $19.3 million project to rehabilitate and resurface 4.3 miles of Route 202 between the Route 100 Interchange and High Street. Construction began in May 2010 and is scheduled to finish in May 2012.

PennDOT is improving Route 202 by replacing deteriorated concrete pavement and resurfacing the four-lane expressway; reinforcing the roadway shoulders; patching and repairing eight bridges; painting steel beams on three bridges; removing and replacing five overhead sign structures; installing new highway signs; installing new guide rail and median barrier; and installing safety rumble strips and pavement reflectors.

The bridges being repaired along Route 202 under this project include the Fernhill Road bridge over Route 202 and the Route 202 bridges over High Street, Bolmar Street, Westtown Road, Route 3, Paoli Pike, and the dual structures carrying Route 202 over the ramp to Route 322.

Allan A. Myers, Inc. of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $19,377,081 project which is financed with 100 percent federal ARRA funds.
