Overnight Closure on U.S. 322 for Bridge Replacement to Cause Delays

Road Closed

WEST GOSHEN TWP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that the overnight superstructure replacement will continue on the Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) bridge over U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) in West Goshen Township, Chester County.

On Thursday, June 20, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) will be closed in both directions between Phoenixville Pike and New Street. Westbound motorists will be detoured via Paoli Pike Interchange, Gay Street, North High Street, Chestnut Street, Hannum Avenue, and Downingtown Pike. Eastbound motorists will follow Business U.S. 322, Hannum Avenue, N. New Street, Market Street, West Chester Pike, and the ramp to U.S. 322/U.S. 202 South.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area as backups and delays will occur. All activities are weather dependent.

The Route 100 bridge and surrounding roads were initially closed on December 21, 2023, after a large vehicle struck the bridge. PennDOT’s contractor has since repaired the structure and cleared debris from the roadway.

Built in 1955, the single-span, steel stringer bridge is 77 feet long and 80 feet wide, carrying about 15,691 vehicles per day. The ongoing replacement is part of efforts to maintain the safety and functionality of this critical infrastructure.
