10/6/2017: Nighttime Lane Restrictions Scheduled Next Week for Resurfacing Operations in Chester County

King of Prussia, PA – Nighttime lane restrictions are scheduled next week on several state highways as part of an improvement project to repair and resurface 19 miles of state highway in Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work schedule is:

  • Monday, October 9, through Thursday, October 12, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Birmingham Road between Old Wilmington Pike and Route 52 (Lenape Road) in Birmingham and East Bradford townships, for paving; and
  • Monday, October 9, through Thursday, October 12, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Kaolin Road between Ewart Road and the bridge over Red Clay Creek in New Garden and Kennett townships.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zones because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.

Additional state highway scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:

  • Westtown Thornton Road from the Delaware County line to Route 926 (Street Road) in Thornbury Township

State highways completed under this resurfacing project include:

  • High Street between U.S. 202 and Route 52 (Price Street) in West Chester Borough and West Goshen Township;
  • Route 926 (Street Road) between U.S. 202 and Cheyney Road in Westtown and Thornbury townships;
  • Red Lion Road from just south of Lenape Unionville Road to Marlborough Road in Pocopson Township;
  • Route 842 (Unionville Wawaset Road) between Route 82 (Doe Run Road) and Bridge Road in Pocopson, Newlin and East Marlborough townships;
  • Lenape Unionville Road from just west of Red Lion Road to just west of Route 52 (Lenape Road) in Pocopson Township; and
  • Fernhill Road between Phoenixville Pike and Paoli Pike in West Goshen Township.

Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in mid-November.

Allan A. Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $3,785,100 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
