Motorists will encounter lane restrictions on state highways in Chester County for resurfacing operations as a part of several projects to repair and resurface state highways, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
Work on these projects will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the job site, special signage and relevant training.
The work schedule and locations are:
- Sunday, June 21, 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, a lane restriction is scheduled on Baltimore Pike/3rd Street between Barnsley Road and Market Street in Oxford Borough and East Nottingham Township for milling operations;
- Monday, June 22, through Friday, June 26, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Sugartown Road between Waynesborough Road & Leopard Road in Tredyffrin Township for base repair operations; and
- Monday, June 22, through Friday, June 26, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Strasburg Road between Doe Run Church Road & Fairview Road in East Fallowfield Township for high friction surface treatment.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under these improvement projects, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
