traffic alert expect delays

CHESTER COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction will begin on Route 82 (Doe Run Road) and West Locust Street in Chester County, under a project to repair 17 bridges in Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties that sustained serious damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida in September 2021.

Beginning Monday, December 5, periodic lane closures will be in place on Mondays through Fridays, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, through late December on the following two structures:

  • Route 82 (Doe Run Road) over Black Run in West Marlborough and East Fallowfield townships; and
  • West Locust Street over Branch of Tweed Creek in Oxford Borough.

Motorists are being advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.

Loftus Construction, Inc. of Cinnaminson, NJ, is the general contractor on this $3.2 million bridge repair project, which is financed with 80% federal and 20% state funds. Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in spring 2023.
