Motorists will encounter lane restrictions on several state highways for resurfacing operations as a part of several projects to repair and resurface miles of state highway in Chester County, 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 jobsite, special signage and relevant training.
The work schedule and locations are:
- Sunday, July 12, through Thursday, July 16, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) between Welsh Pool Road and Garrison Drive in Uwchlan Township for milling operations; and
- Monday, July 13, through Friday, July 17, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 82 (Manor Road) between Route 340 (Kings Highway) and Cedar Knoll Road in West Brandywine Township for milling and overlay operations.
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.
