CHESTER COUNTY, PA — PECO Energy has announced plans for utility construction on two state highways in Chester County, and these projects are expected to cause significant traffic backups and delays over the coming weeks.

Starting Monday, March 4, and continuing through Friday, March 29, a weekday lane closure is scheduled from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on southbound Route 100 (Pottstown Pike). This closure will be at the intersection with Ticonderoga Boulevard in Upper Uwchlan Township.

The traffic disruptions will continue into April with another round of construction planned. From Monday, April 1, through Friday, May 3, a weekday lane closure is scheduled from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Route 113 (Bridge Street). The affected area will be between Hall Street and Taylor Alley in Phoenixville Borough.

Motorists who travel through or near these work areas are advised to allow extra time for their commute. Significant backups and delays are expected as a result of these lane closures. As always, all scheduled activities are dependent on favorable weather conditions.

PECO Energy is undertaking these projects under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.
