WEST GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced the reopening of both eastbound and westbound U.S. 322, as well as the bridge that carries Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) over the highway in West Goshen Township, Chester County. The roads were closed following damage sustained from a large vehicle strike.

The closures, which began early Thursday morning, December 21, were necessitated after the bridge and roadway below were damaged. PennDOT’s contractor worked to repair the structure and clear debris from U.S. 322 where it had fallen from the bridge following the vehicle strike.

Despite the reopening of U.S. 322 and the Route 100 bridge, the ramp from Route 100 to eastbound U.S. 322 will remain closed for additional repairs in the coming weeks.

Built in 1955, the single-span, steel stringer Route 100 bridge over U.S. 322 is a significant part of the local infrastructure, measuring 77-feet-long and 80-feet-wide, and carrying approximately 15,691 vehicles per day.
