Lane Closures on U.S. 322 for Embankment Repairs, Expect Delays

Traffic Alert

WEST GOSHEN TWP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction continues on a $2.2 million project to repair roadway embankment erosion on eastbound U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) in West Goshen Township, Chester County.

From Monday, June 17, through Thursday, June 20, a lane closure is scheduled on eastbound U.S. 322 between the Penn Drive overpass and Phoenixville Pike. The lane will be closed from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM each day. Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area as backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

This project addresses slope failure on northbound U.S. 322 caused by remnants of Hurricane Ida in 2021. Construction includes installing a 150-foot retaining wall to stabilize the eroded embankment, reconstructing the deteriorated shoulder, milling and paving along the retaining wall, replacing guiderails, improving stormwater drainage, and adding riprap material for scour protection.

The ongoing repairs aim to ensure the long-term stability and safety of this busy roadway section. PennDOT’s contractor is working diligently to complete the project while minimizing disruptions to traffic flow. Completion is expected later this year.
