Widened Route 202 makes long-awaited debut

Starting at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 3, commuters got to enjoy the debut of 2.5 miles of Route 202, widened to six lanes.

PennDOT said crews worked Tuesday night, Aug. 2, into the morning to complete line-striping and other operations for opening the rebuilt highway between the Routes 401 and 30 interchanges in East Whiteland Township, according to a PennDOT press release.

The work substantially completes construction on a $63.3 million improvement project that began in April 2013. Crews will continue to work and close lanes at night periodically for the next several weeks to complete miscellaneous construction activities and cleanup operations in the work zone, the release said.

The opening capped several weeks of nighttime activities by the contractor to complete the installation of the concrete median barrier, removal of construction barriers, and repainting of traffic lines in the work zone.
