Conchester Highway lane restriction update

Daytime lane closures are scheduled this week on Route 322, the Conchester Highway, between fromRoute 1 to just east of Mattson Road/Featherbed Lane in Concord Township, for clearing operations related to a $62.7 million project to improve and widen the highway.

Through Friday, April 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., flaggers will direct an alternating single lane of traffic on the Conchester through various work areas along the 2.6-mile construction zone.

Crews are clearing the eastbound side of the road, where the highway will be widened, installing erosion controls and building construction entrances for the improvement project.

Motorists should expect delays on 322 and on northbound Route 1 the Conchester, and should allow extra time for travel through the work areas, or use an alternate route.

Scheduled activities are weather dependent.

PennDOT began construction March 20, on the first-of-two mainline projects to widen and reconstruct a 6.7-mile section of Route 322 from Route 1 to just east of Route 452 in Concord, Bethel and Upper Chichester townships.

The Conchester will remain open to one lane of traffic in each direction during peak travel times. Periodic flagger-controlled lane restrictions may occur Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., for various operations as construction advances along the corridor.

Work on the first mainline section — Section 101— of Route 322 is scheduled to be completed in fall 2020.

J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, is the general contractor on the project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
