SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is set to undertake a significant pavement repair operation starting this week, targeting over 45 state highways throughout the Philadelphia area. This ambitious initiative aims to address deteriorated sections of roadways, enhancing safety and mobility for motorists.

Scheduled work will span multiple counties, including Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia, each seeing various state highways under repair. In Bucks County, efforts will focus on roads such as Trumbauersville Road in Richland Township and Bristol Road in Warwick and Warminster townships, among others. Chester County will see improvements on major routes like U.S. 202 across several townships and Route 472 through Elk and Oxford townships.

Delaware County’s key arteries, including the U.S. 1 Media Bypass and U.S. 322 Conchester Highway, will undergo repairs, alongside several other important roadways. Montgomery County’s Interstate 76 and U.S. 422, along with their ramps, are also on the list for maintenance. In Philadelphia County, notable streets such as Broad Street (Route 611) and Grays Ferry Avenue will receive much-needed attention.

Travel lanes on these highways will experience restrictions as crews work to patch areas showing signs of significant wear. Motorists are advised to remain vigilant, anticipate intermittent lane closures, and prepare for potential delays when approaching work zones. The safety of both the workers and the traveling public is a priority, with drivers reminded to slow down and avoid distractions while passing through the areas under repair.

All scheduled repair activities are subject to weather conditions, and PennDOT is committed to keeping the public informed of any changes to the work schedule.
