King of Prussia, PA – Nighttime lane closures will be in place this week and early next week on U.S. 30 in both directions between the Business U.S. 30 and Route 100 interchanges in West Whiteland Township, Chester County, for the removal of construction barriers, paving, line painting and rumble strip installation, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) said today.
This operation, which will remove the temporary lane shift on eastbound U.S. 30, is part of the $2.9 million project to repair the highway and address sinkhole activity at two locations on U.S. 30. The project is scheduled to finish in mid-November.
Eastbound U.S. 30 will be reduced to one lane tonight, November 8, through Friday, November 11, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM. Westbound U.S. 30 will be restricted to one lane from 7:00 PM Thursday, November 10, to 5:00 AM Friday, November 11. In addition, both eastbound and westbound U.S. 30 will be reduced to one lane from 7:00 PM Monday, November 14 to 5:00 AM Tuesday, November 15.
The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.
PennDOT began construction on June 1, 2016, to reinforce the earth under U.S. 30 in the median and parts of the eastbound and westbound inside travel lanes about 2,000 feet east of the Business U.S. 30 Interchange, and in the eastbound inside lane and median approximately 1,000 feet east of the bridge over Clover Mill Road.
Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on the $2,971,205 project that is financed with 100 percent state funds.
