King of Prussia, PA – Travel restrictions are scheduled at night for construction on U.S. 202 south between the Route 401 and U.S. 30 interchanges in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.
The work is part of the $63.3 million project to widen and reconstruct two miles of U.S. 202 from north of Route 401 to U.S. 30, and rebuild and improve the Route 401 Interchange.
On Monday, June 13, through Thursday, June 16, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, and from 8:00 PM Friday, June17, to 10:00 AM Saturday, June 18, U.S. 202 south will be reduced from two lanes to one for median area paving and median barrier installation. The southbound left lane will be closed during this overnight operation.
Drivers also are reminded that Route 401 (Conestoga Road) is scheduled to be reduced to one lane in each direction at the U.S. 202 Interchange from 10:00 PM Friday, June 10, to 10:00 AM Sunday, June 12, for reconstruction of the north side of the intersection with Moores Road.
Moores Road north of Route 401 (Conestoga Road) also will be closed between Route 401 (Conestoga Road) and Sidley Road/Mill Lane from 10:00 PM Friday, June 10, to 10:00 AM Sunday, June 12, for construction at the Route 401 (Conestoga Road) intersection. Moores Road travelers will be detoured over Mill Lane during the weekend closure.
The construction schedules are dependent on the weather. If weather causes the cancellation of the planned reconstruction of the north side of the intersection of Route 401 (Conestoga Road) and Moores Road, this work will be done the following weekend, June 17-19.
Construction to expand U.S. 202 to six lanes from north of Route 401 to U.S. 30, including work at the Route 401 Interchange, is being performed by Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County. The project is scheduled to finish in late summer 2016.
