Road Report Sept. 25 to Oct. 1

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. 25 to Oct. 1. Motorists are urged to allow extra time if they are traveling through one of the construction zones. Work schedules are subject to change.

Paving will continue to cause overnight lane closures on Pocopson Road, between Trolley Way and Street Road in Pocopson Township, through Sept. 30.

Flagging for bridge deck cleaning will slow daytime traffic on Walnut Road between Gate Lane and Wilson Road in Kennett Township from Sept. 27 to Oct. 1.

Flagging for gas main installation will slow daytime traffic on Brintons Bridge Road between General Weedon Drive and Winturford Drive in Birmingham Township from Sept. 27 through Oct. 8.

Roadwork on Route 1 through Chadds Ford will continue to be a problem for the remainder of the year. 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 will also continue to prepare Route 1 Hoffman Mill Road and Route 202 for repaving. Cutting and patching will continue for several months but the actual repaving won’t begin until sometime in the spring.

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 through Nov. 26.

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.
