U.S. 202 South Off-Ramp to Route 401 in Chester County Closed Friday Night for Realignment
King of Prussia – The U.S. Route 202 South off-ramp to Route 401 in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, will be closed and detoured from 8 p.m. Friday (Oct. 3) to 10 a.m. Saturday (Oct. 4) for the realignment of the off-ramp, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.
The overnight operation to relocate the southbound Route 202 off-ramp onto newly built pavement is associated with PennDOT’s $63.3 million project to improve the Route 401 Interchange and widen 2.5 miles of Route 202 to six lanes between the Route 401 and Route 30 interchanges in East Whiteland Township.
During the ramp closure, which is weather dependent, southbound Route 202 traffic will be detoured south to the Route 30 East/Business Route 30 exit, then left onto Route 30 (Lancaster Avenue) and right onto the ramp to Route 202 North. Motorists will then follow Route 202 North back to the Route 401 exit.
In the event of inclement weather, the ramp closure will be rescheduled to the following night (Oct. 4).
Drivers are advised to use extra care when traveling through the construction zone and to expect slowdowns.
Construction to improve Route 202 from north of Route 401 to Route 30, including work at the Route 401 Interchange, is being done by Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County. The project is scheduled to finish in 2016.
