traffic alert expect delays

SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA — Motorists in Delaware and Montgomery counties are being alerted to prepare for potential delays as PECO Energy undertakes utility construction on several state highways. The project, which is set to cause significant backups, will be carried out under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.

In Delaware County, travel restrictions will affect Route 252 (Providence Road) between Furness Lane and Prichard Lane in Nether Providence Township. From Thursday, January 25, through Friday, February 16, a weekday lane closure will be in effect from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Over in Montgomery County, similar disruptions will be experienced on U.S. 30 (Lancaster Avenue) between Indian Creek Lane and Church Road in Lower Merion Township. The lane closure, impacting both directions of the highway, will also be in place from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, starting on Monday, January 22, and ending on Friday, February 16.

PECO Energy has urged motorists to anticipate these disruptions and plan their journeys accordingly. Allowing extra time when traveling through or near the work areas is strongly advised, as backups and delays are expected to occur. However, it’s important to note that all scheduled activities are subject to change depending on weather conditions.
