PennDOT Launches Safety Enhancements in Philadelphia Region

Lane closures

SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has embarked on a significant initiative aimed at bolstering safety across the Philadelphia region. This $7.5 million project, fully funded by federal resources, seeks to install various safety improvements designed to facilitate smoother travel and mitigate the risk of high-speed collisions within the five-county area.

In Chester County, motorists can expect weekday lane closures on Romansville Road between Chestnut Lane and Ridgewood Drive in West Bradford Township from Monday, April 22, through Friday, May 3, between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. This disruption will allow for the installation of new signage, part of a broader effort to enhance road safety. Additionally, Route 82 (Manor Road) will undergo similar measures between Little Conestoga Road and Route 340 (Kings Highway) across Valley, West Brandywine, Wallace, and West Nantmeal townships, lasting from Monday, April 22, through Friday, May 24.

Delaware County is also set to witness safety upgrades, with a periodic lane closure scheduled on Route 320 (Cedar Lane) between Swarthmore Avenue and Magill Road in Swarthmore Borough. From Monday, April 22, through Friday, April 26, crews will be installing lane separator curbs between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM, a measure aimed at preventing lane departure crashes.

Travelers are advised to anticipate potential delays and allocate additional time when navigating these areas due to the scheduled works. It’s important to note that all activities are subject to change based on weather conditions, underscoring the project’s reliance on favorable weather for timely completion.

Kuharchik Construction, Inc., based in Exeter, has been appointed as the general contractor for this project.
