Road Report for Oct. 8 through Oct. 14

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

After more than a year, work will finally begin Monday, Oct. 10 on the replacement of the Route 162 (Embreeville Road) bridge over the West Branch of Brandywine Creek in Newlin Township. The bridge was damaged on Sept. 1 of last year during the flooding from Hurricane Ida. During construction, Route 162 motorists will continue to be detoured using Route 842 (Wawaset Road/Unionville Wawaset Road/Bridge Road/Creek Road/West Miner Street) and Bradford Avenue. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. The closure will remain in place until late December. The contractor will return in early spring 2023 to place the final pavement surface layer and plant grass seed. During these operations, the bridge will be closed again for a few weeks.

Paving and concrete patching operations will resume next week on Route 1. From Sunday, Oct. 9, through Friday, Oct. 14, motorists should expect overnight lane closures in both directions between Pole Cat Road and Route 202 in Concord Township and daytime closures from Fairville Road to Route 202 in Chadds Ford from Monday to Friday.

Utility construction will continue to cause lane closures on Concord Road between Pleasant Grove and Oakbourne in Westtown Township through Oct. 30.

Utility pole replacement will cause daytime lane closures on Route 202 between E. Pleasant Grove Road and Piedmont Road in Westtown Township through Oct. 28.

Motorists should expect daytime lane closures on Route 162 (Embreeville Road) between Route 82 and Scott Road in East Marlborough Township for utility construction. The work is expected to last through Friday, Oct. 28.

Through the end of December, utility renewal will continue causing daytime lane restrictions on Route 52 between Fairville Road and Wedgewood Drive in Pennsbury Township.

Motorists should expect lane restrictions with a detour for trucks on Route 162 at its intersection with Route 82 in Newlin Township because of bridge repair. There is currently no date for completion.
