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

Traffic, flagging

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

From Sunday, June 9, through Wednesday, June 12, U.S. 322 will be closed in both directions between Phoenixville Pike and New Street from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM.

During these hours, westbound U.S. 322 motorists should use the Paoli Pike Interchange, Gay Street, North High Street, Chestnut Street, Hannum Avenue, and Downingtown Pike. Eastbound drivers are directed to use Business U.S. 322, Hannum Avenue, North New Street, Market Street, West Chester Pike, and the ramp to U.S. 322/U.S. 202 South.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area due to expected backups and delays. All scheduled activities depend on weather conditions.

The project follows an incident on December 21, 2023, when a large vehicle struck the Route 100 bridge, leading to the closure of Route 100, U.S. 322, and the ramp from Route 100 to eastbound U.S. 322. PennDOT’s contractor has since repaired the damaged structure and a section of U.S. 322 where debris fell.

Built in 1955, the single-span steel stringer bridge is 77 feet long and 80 feet wide, carrying about 15,691 vehicles daily.
