Major Road Closures Expected as Aqua Pennsylvania Undertakes Water Main Construction

Road Closed

SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA — Aqua Pennsylvania is set to embark on a significant water main construction project that will affect several state highways in Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties. The construction work, which is expected to cause substantial backups and delays, will necessitate road closures and detours over the coming months.

In Chester County, Hibernia Road in West Brandywine Township will be closed and detoured between U.S. 322 (Horseshoe Pike) and Route 82 (Manor Road) from Monday, February 5, through Friday, February 16. The closure will be in effect from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on weekdays and from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturdays. During this period, motorists will be redirected to use U.S. 322 (Horseshoe Pike) and Route 82 (Manor Road).

Over in Delaware County, a lengthy closure will affect Brookhaven Road/Turner Road between Route 252 (Providence Road) and Plush Mill Road in Nether Providence Township. This closure will be in place from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, starting Monday, February 5, and lasting until Friday, August 30. Motorists will be directed to use Route 252 (Providence Road) and Baltimore Pike during the closure.

Meanwhile, in Montgomery County, Horsham Road will be closed and detoured between Route 263 (York Road) and Blair Mill Road in Upper Moreland Township. This closure will run from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, starting Monday, February 5, and extending until Friday, June 14. During this time, motorists will be redirected to use Route 263 (York Road), Mill Road, Route 611 (Easton Road), and Blair Mill Road.

While local access will be maintained up to the work zone, motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through or near these areas due to the anticipated backups and delays. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

Aqua Pennsylvania will carry out this project under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.
