PennDOT: Smoother travel down the road

PennDOT has announced the beginning of construction on a $3.4 million project to repair and resurface over 13 miles of state highway in Chester County, including portions of Routes 202 and 926.

Crews will begin work in October to resurface Route 401 between French Bridge and Iron Stone Lane in West Nantmeal Township. The resurfacing of Route 401 is expected to take one week to complete, said PennDOT press release.

The additional state highways to be repaired and resurfaced under this contract include:

  • Route 202 between Route 322 and Dilworthtown Road in West Goshen, Westtown, Thornbury, and Birmingham townships;
  • Route 842 (Creek Road) between Brandywine Creek and Brandwine Street in East Bradford Township;
  • West Miner Street between Brandywine Street and South High Street in West Chester Borough;
  • Route 926 between Cheyney Road and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in Willistown, Westtown, and Thornbury townships;
  • Route 30 ramps at the of Route 82 Interchange in Valley Township; and
  • Route 30 ramps at the Reeceville Road Interchange in Caln Township.

Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill off the existing roadway surface and repave the two 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, the release said.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.
