King of Prussia, PA – Travel restrictions are scheduled at night next week on U.S. 202 in East Whiteland and Tredyffrin townships, Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.
The work is associated with PennDOT’s project to widen 6.5 miles of U.S. 202 between the Route 252/Swedesford Road Interchange in Tredyffrin Township and the U.S. 30 Interchange in East Whiteland Township under two construction contracts totaling $168.7 million.
Northbound and southbound U.S. 202 will be reduced from two lanes to one from 9:00 PM Sunday, October 11, to 5:00 AM Monday, October 12, for the erection of an overhead sign structure between the Route 401 and U.S. 30 interchanges in East Whiteland Township. If weather cancels the operation, or if the work is not completed Sunday night, crews will return and work from 10:00 PM Monday, October 12, to 5:00 AM Tuesday, October 13.
On Monday, October 12, through Thursday, October 15, northbound and southbound U.S. 202 will be reduced from three lanes to two from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM for storm water pipe cleaning between the Route 401 and Chesterbrook Boulevard interchanges in East Whiteland and Tredyffrin townships. If inclement weather cancels work during the week, crews will work from 10:00 PM Friday, October 16, to 10:00 AM Saturday, October 17.
In addition, road reconstruction continues on Route 401 (Conestoga Road) at the U.S. 202 Interchange in East Whiteland Township and may result in lane closures Monday, October 12, through Friday, October 16, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM, and on Saturday, October 17 from 12:01 AM to 10:00 AM. Intermittent traffic stoppages also may occur during overnight operations.
Motorists are advised to allow additional time for travel and use extra care when driving through the construction zones. The work schedules are dependent on the weather.
The widening of U.S. 202 from north of the Route 401 Interchange to the Swedesford Road/Route 252 Interchange, which was substantially completed last fall, is being performed by the Richard E. Pierson Construction Company, Inc. of Woodstown, N.J., under a $105.4 million contract.
Construction to expand U.S. 202 from north of Route 401 to U.S. 30, including work at the Route 401 Interchange, is being done by Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County. The $63.3 million contract is scheduled to finish in late summer 2016.
