Lane Restrictions

DELAWARE COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that resurfacing continues Marshall Road in Lansdowne Borough and Upper Darby Township, Delaware County, under a project to improve travel and safety on Marshall Road between Wycombe Avenue and Church Lane, under a project to improve travel and safety on Marshall Road between Wycombe Avenue and Church Lane.

The work schedule and location are:

  • Monday, July 24, through early November, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a weekday lane closure with flagging is scheduled on Marshall Road between Wycombe Avenue and Church Lane for paving, high friction surface treatment, and line striping.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Under this safety improvement project, PennDOT will upgrade signalization, modify intersections, install ADA curb ramps, and resurface and restripe the corridor. Traffic signals will be updated with vehicle detection and pedestrian signal equipment, mounted on new mast arms, and connected via wireless technology, which will transmit real-time data back to the PennDOT Regional Traffic Management Center in King of Prussia for enhanced optimization and emergency incident management.

As part of the project, Marshall Road will be reduced from its current undivided four-lane highway to a three-lane corridor between Wycombe Avenue and Hampden Road. This restriping will involve the addition of a center left-turn lane. The contractor will also place a high-friction surface treatment on the pavement at approaches to select intersections within the road-diet limits to improve travel and safety during inclement weather. Left-turn lanes will be added at five intersections, and right-turn lanes will be added at three intersections. Three intersections along the corridor will have left-turn lanes modified and improved.
