Roadwork for June 8-June 14

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 June 8-June 14. Motorists are urged to allow extra time if they are traveling through one of the construction zones. Work schedules are subject to change.

Creek Road is scheduled to close between Brinton’s Bridge Road and Route 1 in Birmingham and Chadds Ford townships on Wednesday, June 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for pipe replacement. During this operation, Creek Road motorists will be directed to use Brinton’s Bridge Road, Route 202 and Route 1. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

Bridge demolition will close Smithbridge Road in Concord Township between Concord Road and Bethel Road/Station from 7 p.m. Friday, June 14, to 6 a.m. Monday, June 17. During the closure, motorists will be directed to use Concord Road, Route 1 and Route 202. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Following weekend demolition activities, crews will begin constructing the northern half of the bridge which, when completed, will carry two westbound lanes of the Conchester Highway over Smithbridge Road.

Road reconstruction will close Spring Valley Road— between Conchester Highway and Concord Road — in Concord Township through April 30, 2020. Detours will be posted.

Lane restrictions on the Conchester Highway, between Routes 1 and Clayton Park Drive will continue through Oct. 20, 2020 for reconstruction and widening.

Motorists will encounter periodic lane closures on Route 1 between Greenwood Road and Route 52 in Kennett Township beginning Monday, June 10, weekdays, from 9: a.m. to 3 p.m., for overhead bridge repairs. The periodic lane closures will take place through mid-August.

Weekday lane closures are planned for Route 41 — Gap Newport Road— between Newark Road and New Garden Road in New Garden Township from  Monday, June 3, through July for road work, part of a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.

Alternating lane closures are scheduled next week on Route 202 at the Pleasant Grove Road intersection in Westtown Township for temporary traffic signal installation. PennDOT is installing the temporary traffic signal to help alleviate congestion during construction of a new connector road between West Pleasant Grove Road and Stetson School Drive by the township. The temporary signal is expected to remain in place until the project’s completion in late August.

Bridge closure continues to close Route 82, near Old Kennett Road, in Kennett Township indefinitely.

Barrier installation will cause lane closures on Brandywine Creek Road between Green Valley Road and Powell Road in Newlin Township through June 20.
