CHESTER COUNTY, PA — Overhead utility construction is scheduled to occur next week on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) under a $10.4 million Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) project to widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of the highway from the Kennett Oxford Bypass to Greenwood Road in Kennett and East Marlborough townships, Chester County.

On Monday, October 2, from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM, a lane closure is scheduled on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between Greenwood Road and Orchard Avenue.

Motorists are being advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

PennDOT’s project includes milling and overlaying U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike), adding a third travel lane on certain sections, constructing sidewalks, eliminating left turn movements, installing Dynamic Message Signs, and upgrading signalized intersections along the corridor.

Allan Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on this project, which is financed with 100% federal funds. Construction on the project is expected to be completed in late 2025.
