U.S. 202 Night Restrictions in Chester County
King of Prussia, PA – Nighttime lane closures will be in place this week and next week on U.S. 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.
The contractor will work at night to replace sections of concrete pavement that were not accepted by PennDOT, and complete miscellaneous work on signs and structures in the six-lane section of U.S. 202 that was substantially completed last year.
Weather permitting, lane closures will be in place on northbound U.S. 202 tonight, May 7, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, and from 8:00 PM Friday, May 8, to 10:00 AM Saturday, May 9.
Next week, nighttime restrictions will occur on northbound and/or southbound U.S. 202 on Monday, May 11, through Thursday, May 14, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, and on Friday, May 15, from 8 PM to 10 AM Saturday, May 16.
Motorists are advised to allow additional time for travel and use extra care when driving through the construction zone.
PennDOT opened nearly four miles of U.S. 202 to six lanes between the Route 252 (Swedesford Road) and Route 401 interchanges last September. 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.
