traffic alert expect delays

CHESTER COUNTY, PA — Roadway construction will continue next week under a $3.6 million Pennsylvania Department of Transportation project to improve travel and safety along a 2.87-mile section of U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) in East Bradford and West Goshen townships, Chester County.

The work schedule and location are:

  • Tuesday, September 5, through Friday, September 8, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, periodic lane closures are scheduled on U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) in both directions between U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) and U.S. 202 for line striping.

Allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays are expected. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

PennDOT’s safety improvement project on U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) aims to enhance safety and efficiency for motorists and bicyclists. The project includes lane narrowing, acceleration lane extension, traffic signal replacement, bicycle-friendly shoulders, rumble strips, guide rail replacement, and wrong way countermeasures. It spans from the intersection of U.S. 322 and Downingtown Pike to U.S. 202, encompassing various intersections like North New Street, Route 100, Penn Drive, and Phoenixville Pike.

Allan Myers of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. Construction on the project is expected to finish this winter.
