SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced a widespread pavement repair initiative set to affect over 40 state highways in the Philadelphia region next week.

The operation involves PennDOT maintenance and contractor crews working to repair deteriorated pavement across several counties, impacting daily commutes and potentially causing delays.

In Bucks County, roads such as Route 611 (Easton Road), Bristol Road, Butler Avenue, Easton Road, Kellers Church Road, Mearns Road, and Street Road will undergo repairs.

Chester County will see work on major routes like U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike), U.S. 30 (Coatesville-Downingtown Bypass and Lancaster Avenue), U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike), Route 10 (Octorara Trail/Compass Road), Route 23 (Ridge Road), Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike), and Route 724 (Schuylkill Road), among others.

Delaware County residents should anticipate repairs on U.S. 1 (Media Bypass), U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike), U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway), Route 3 (West Chester Pike), Route 252 (Providence Road), Route 291 (Industrial Highway), and Route 352 (Middletown Road), along with several other local roads.

In Montgomery County, U.S. 202 and U.S. 422, along with their associated ramps, and Route 100 will be affected. And in Philadelphia County, motorists can expect work on I-95, I-76 (Schuylkill Expressway), I-676 (Vine Street Expressway), and Route 63 (Woodhaven Road), including their associated ramps.

Travel lanes on these highways will be restricted as crews patch areas of deteriorating pavement. Motorists are advised to be alert for these moving operations and expect intermittent lane closures and possible slowdowns near the work zones.

PennDOT urges drivers to slow down in the work areas and avoid distracted driving, ensuring the safety of both motorists and work crews. As always, all activities are weather dependent. While this may cause short-term inconvenience, the long-term benefit will be safer, smoother roads for southeastern Pennsylvania’s motorists.
