Road Report Sept. 18 to Sept. 24

PennDOT has announced the following road projects, which are weather-dependent and could affect drivers in the greater Chadds Ford area during the week of Sept. 18 to Sept. 24. Motorists are urged to allow extra time if they are traveling through one of the construction zones. Work schedules are subject to change.

Roadwork for two projects on Route 1 through Chadds Ford will continue to be a problem for motorists during the remainder of 2021. Lane closures remain in place in both directions on Route 1 between Hoffman Mill Road and Fairville Road in Chadds Ford and Pennsbury townships, under a project to repair the Route 1 bridge over the Brandywine Creek. The right lane closures will remain in place 24/7 through mid-October. Once the right lanes reopen to traffic in mid-October, the left lane in both directions will close through late December to continue expansion dam replacement.

Work crews continue to prepare Route 1 for paving and that will continue to cause traffic delays.

Work crews will also continue to prepare the roadway between Hoffman Mill Road and Route 202for repaving. Cutting and patching will continue for several months but the actual repaving won’t begin until sometime in the spring. Under this project, PennDOT’s contractor will mill, overlay, and rehabilitate the existing pavement; perform concrete patching and concrete base repair as needed; construct new concrete curbed median; install new pavement markings, rumble strips, delineators, and signs; and upgrade guide rail and curb ramps.

Utility repair will cause lane closures on Baltimore Pike between Excelon Way and McFarlane Road in Kennett Township from Sept. 20-24.

Traffic signal installation will cause lane closures on Route 82 between Cedarcroft Road and Unicorn Lane from Sept. 20-24.

Storm damage has forced the closing of the Street Road Bridge over the White Clay Creek in West Marlborough Township. PennDOT is listing the closure as indefinite.

Storm damage also closed Embreeville Road Bridge over the West Branch over the Brandywine Creek in Newlin Township. That closure, too, is listed as indefinite.
