Roadwork for week of Oct. 3

PennDOT has announced the following road projects, which are weather-dependent and could affect residents in the greater Chadds Ford area during the week of Oct. 3 through Oct. 10. The department recommends that motorists allow extra time if they are traveling through one of the construction zones.

Motorists on Route 202 in both directions in West Goshen, East Goshen and Westtown townships will experience intermittent lane closures from Monday, Oct. 5, through Thursday, Oct. 8. The work on crack sealing will occur between Boot Road and High Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Lane restrictions for road widening will occur on Kennett Pike in Kennett Township between Deer Pond and Hillendale roads. Crews are scheduled to work from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Friday, Oct. 2, through Monday, Oct. 5.

Paving and base repair will continue on Webb Road in Chadds Ford Township between Baltimore Pike and Oakland Road. The work will be done from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday, Oct. 5, through Saturday, Oct. 10.

Utility installation will result in a lane closure on Smithbridge Road in Concord Township between Paschall Drive and Country Lane. The work will be done from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Wednesday, Oct. 7, through Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Lane closures on Route 202 in Concord and Chadds Ford townships will continue for roadwork between Applied Card Way and Route 1 in connection with the Wegmans shopping center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Oct. 1.

The Wegmans project will also necessitate lane closures on Route 1 in Concord Township in both directions between Brinton Lake Road and Route 202 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., also through Oct. 1.

Burnt Mill Road in Kennett Township is closed and detoured indefinitely between Norway and Spring Mill roads while advance work continues on repairs to the Burnt Mill Bridge, which was closed on April 24, 2014.

The road-widening project continues on Route 100 in Uwchlan and West Whiteland townships. Lane closures will be in effect between Swedesford Road and Route 113 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday, Oct. 5, through Thursday, Oct. 8.

Work is continuing on the project to widen Route 202, which is scheduled for completion in August 2016. Motorists will experience traffic pattern shifts and lane closures in both directions in East Whiteland Township between the Routes 30 and 401 interchanges.

Nighttime lane restrictions are scheduled on I-95 in Philadelphia for bridge joint sealing. On Monday, Oct. 5, through Thursday, Oct. 8, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., one lane will be closed on southbound I-95 between Bartram Avenue and the Philadelphia International Airport; on Thursday, Oct. 8, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., one lane will be closed on southbound I-95 from Washington Avenue to the Walt Whitman Bridge.

Lane restrictions are planned starting Sunday night, Oct. 4, on I-95 in Philadelphia, Baltimore Pike in Delaware County, and Route 100 in Chester County for the installation and replacement of raised pavement markers. The reflective markers, installed along center lines, edge lines and ramps, will improve visibility and safety for drivers at night and in bad weather such as rain, fog and snow. During the overnight installation, crews will occupy one lane to conduct a slow-moving operation, and motorists are advised to be alert for slowdowns.
