U.S. 202 Nighttime Restrictions Planned in Chester County

King of Prussia – Drivers will face nighttime lane closures over the next week when traveling on U.S. Route 202 between the Chesterbrook and Route 401 interchanges in Tredyffrin and East Whiteland townships, Chester County, for roadwork, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said today.

Crews will work at night to finish the newly opened six-lane section of Route 202 by sealing pavement joints, installing reflective pavement markers and smoothing out areas of concrete pavement.

Lane closures will be in place on northbound and southbound Route 202 from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24 to 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 23; on Sunday, Oct. 26 through Thursday, Oct. 30 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.; and from 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31 to 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 1.

PennDOT opened nearly 4 miles of Route 202 to 6 lanes between the Route 252 (Swedesford Road) and Route 401 interchanges on Sept. 26. The highway was rebuilt and widened under a $105.4 million project that began in April 2011.

Richard E. Pierson Construction Company, Inc. of Woodstown, N.J. is the general contractor on the $105,415,093 project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
