In addition, nighttime lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled on Route 926 (Street Road) between Cheyney Road and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in Willistown, Westtown, and Thornbury townships, through Thursday, May 4, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for paving.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling these work zones because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.
This work is part of a $3.4 million project to repair and resurface over 13 miles of state highway in Chester County.
As part of this project, crews resurfaced Birmingham Road between Route 52 (Lenape Road) and Route 842 (Miner Street) in East Bradford Township; Route 842 (Creek Road/West Miner Street) between Brandywine Creek and South High Street in East Bradford Township and West Chester Borough; and Route 401 (Conestoga Road) between French Bridge and Iron Stone Lane in West Nantmeal Township.
The additional state highways to be repaired and resurfaced under this contract are:
• The eastbound and westbound ramps from Route 82 (Manor Road) to the U.S. 30 Bypass in Valley Township; and
• The eastbound and westbound ramps Reeceville Road to the U.S. 30 Bypass in Caln Township.
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.
