Roadwork scheduled for week of Sept. 29

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced the following road projects, which are weather-dependent and could affect residents in the greater Chadds Ford area during the week of Sept. 28 through Oct. 5. PennDOT recommends that motorists allow extra time if they are traveling through one of the construction zones.

In addition to the construction projects, PennDOT said it will open nearly four miles of Route 202 to six lanes the weekend of Sept. 27-28 between the Route 252 (Swedesford Road) and Route. 401 interchanges in Tredyffrin and East Whiteland Townships.

Drivers on Route 202 in both directions will experience lane closures between the Delaware County line and Matlack Street from Monday, Sept. 29, through Friday, Oct. 3, in Birmingham, Westtown, Thornbury and West Goshen Townships. Crews will be sealing cracks from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Cable guide rail installation will require shoulder closure between Newark Road and East Baltimore Pike on U.S. 1 in both directions in New Garden and Kennett Townships. The work will be done from Monday, Sept. 29, through Friday, Dec. 19.

The roundabout project continues on Wawaset Road in Pocopson Township, which will be closed until Nov. 26 between Lenape-Unionville and Corinne Roads; detours are posted. Detours are also posted on Rt. 52, which will also be closed through Nov. 26 between Pocopson and Locust Grove Roads in Pocopson Township for roundabout reconstruction.

Burnt Mill Road in Kennett Township is closed and detoured between Norway and Spring Mill Roads indefinitely while crews work to repair damage to a bridge that collapsed on April 24.

Route 202 in both directions will continue to require a traffic pattern shift between the Route 401 and Route 30 interchanges through May 2016 during the ongoing road reconstruction and widening.

Utility installation will cause lane restrictions on North High Street in West Chester Borough on Monday, Sept. 29, and Tuesday, Sept. 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Utility installation work and lane restrictions will also continue through Friday, Oct. 3, on Hannum Avenue in West Chester between South New and West Market Streets.
