Motorists will encounter lane restrictions on Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) and Route 352 (Middletown Road) in Chester and Delaware counties for resurfacing operations, as a part of several projects to repair and resurface more than 200 miles of state highways across the five-county Philadelphia region, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
The work schedules and locations are:
- Monday, December 13, through Friday, December 17, from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM, a lane closure is scheduled on Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) between Route 10 (Limestone Road) and Fallowfield Road in West Fallowfield Township, Chester County for paving operations; and
- Tuesday, December 14, through Friday, December 17, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a lane closure is scheduled on Route 352 (Middletown Road) between Van Leer Avenue and Route 926 (Street Road) in Middletown, Edgmont and Thornbury townships in Delaware County for base repair 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 states it 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.
Motorists can check current road conditions by visiting the MyChesCo Traffic Center.
