The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced a 2.87-mile section of U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) will undergo utility construction for a $3.5 million project aimed at improving travel and safety in East Bradford and West Goshen townships, Chester County.

A lane closure is scheduled on U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) in both directions between U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) and U.S. 202 from Monday, May 8, through Friday, May 12, scheduled from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Expect delays while traveling through the work area; all activities are dependent on weather conditions.

Improvements are underway on the U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) corridor. As part of the safety enhancement project, PennDOT revealed that its contractor will:

  • Narrow travel lanes
  • Extend acceleration lanes
  • Install new traffic signals

This stretch of improvements covers the intersections of North New Street, Route 100 (Pottstown Pike), Penn Drive, Phoenixville Pike, and U.S. 202. The project’s goal is to improve the safety and efficiency of motorists and bicyclists. Allan Myers of Worcester is the general contractor, while 100% of the funding comes from federal sources. Construction is expected to finish by winter.
