Lane restrictions are scheduled in both directions on U.S.1. (Kennett Oxford Bypass) in Chester County on Tuesday, September 8, through Friday, September 11, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for bridge painting and other repairs, as part of a bridge rehabilitation project, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

The work location consists of U.S. 1 (Kennett Oxford Bypass) between the Route 272 (Nottingham) interchange and East Ridge Road in West Nottingham Township, Chester County.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Work on this project 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 job site, and relevant training.

Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on the nine-bridge improvement project in Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties that PennDOT is repairing under a $4,475,284 project financed with 100 percent state funds.
