Route 1 paving expected to start soon

PennDOT now has a projection about when the work on Route 1 will begin. Repaving along the section between the Brandywine Creek and Route 52 was expected to start today, March 23, depending on the weather. According to PennDOT spokesman Brad Rudolph, there are more than 12 shifts scheduled to do the work, and that’s expected to take until the middle of April.

He said that the work on Route 1 through Chadds Ford Township would take longer. Crews are expected to start milling in mid-April, while repaving is expected to start at the end of April or early May.

“[The milling] is expected to take about two weeks,” Rudolph said, “and another two weeks to pave.”

Rudolph stressed that the work on both sections is weather dependent, so the work might take longer than anticipated.
