Traffic Advisory: Lane Shift and Shoulder Reconstruction on Westbound U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) in Chester County

Road work - traffic alert

CHESTER COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that roadway construction will continue next week under a $3.6 million project to improve travel and safety along a 2.87-mile section of U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) in East Bradford and West Goshen townships, Chester County.

The work schedule and location are:

  • Monday, July 31, through Saturday, August 5, from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, a lane shift is scheduled on westbound U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) between U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) and U.S. 202 for shoulder reconstruction.

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

Under this safety improvement project, PennDOT stated that its contractor will narrow the travel lanes; extend the acceleration lanes; replace and install traffic signals; construct shoulders to accommodate bicycles; install center line rumble strips; replace guide rails; and install wrong way countermeasures throughout the project corridor.

The improvements begin at the intersection of U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) and U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) and continue east to the U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) intersection with U.S. 202. The intersections included in this project are North New Street, Route 100 (Pottstown Pike), Penn Drive, Phoenixville Pike, and U.S. 202.

The project aims to improve the safe and efficient movement of motorists and bicyclists on the U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) corridor.

Allan Myers of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. Construction on the project is expected to finish this winter.
