LANE RESTRICTIONS SCHEDULED NEXT WEEK FOR RESURFACING IN CHESTER COUNTY
King of Prussia, PA – Lane restrictions are scheduled next week on several state highways in Chester County, as construction continues on a $3.4 million project to repair and resurface over 13 miles of state highway in Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced.
The milling and paving work, which is weather dependent, is as follows:
• Monday, April 3, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on the eastbound and westbound ramps from Route 82 (Manor Road) to the U.S. 30 Bypass in Valley Township;
• Tuesday, April 4, and Wednesday, April 5, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on the eastbound and westbound ramps Reeceville Road to the U.S. 30 Bypass in Caln Township; and
• Wednesday, April 5, and Thursday, April 6, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Birmingham Road between Route 52 (Lenape Road) and Route 842 (Miner Street) in East Bradford Township.
As part of this project, crews resurfaced Route 401 (Conestoga Road) between French Bridge and Iron Stone Lane in West Nantmeal Township in October 2016.
The additional state highways to be repaired and resurfaced under this contract are:
• U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike) between U.S 322 and Dilworthtown Road in West Goshen, Westtown, Thornbury, and Birmingham townships;
• Route 842 (Creek Road) between Brandywine Creek and Brandwine Street in East Bradford Township;
• Route 842 (West Miner Street) between Brandywine Street and South High Street in West Chester Borough; and
• Route 926 (Street Road) between Cheyney Road and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in Willistown, Westtown, and Thornbury townships.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill off the existing roadway surface and repave the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface. All work on the project is expected to be completed in July 2017.
