King of Prussia, PA – Weekday lane restrictions are scheduled on U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike) between Dilworthtown Road/Delaware County line and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in Birmingham, Thornbury, Westtown and West Goshen townships, Chester County, on Monday, July 31, through Friday, August 4, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for utility adjustments, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling in the work zone 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.
Additional state highways resurfaced under this contract include:
• U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike) between Dilworthtown Road and the U.S. 202 Expressway Interchange in Westtown, West Goshen, Thornbury and Birmingham townships;
• The eastbound and westbound ramps from Route 82 (Manor Road) to the U.S. 30 Bypass in Valley Township;
• The eastbound and westbound ramps Reeceville Road to the U.S. 30 Bypass in Caln Township;
• 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;
• Route 401 (Conestoga Road) between French Bridge and Iron Stone Lane in West Nantmeal Township; 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 milled the existing roadway surface and repaved the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
