CHESTER COUNTY, PA — Roadway construction is expected to continue this week under a $3.6 million Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) 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.

On Monday, October 2, through Friday, October 6, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, 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 inlet adjustments and guide rail installation.

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

PennDOT’s safety improvement project on U.S. 322 (West Chester Bypass) aims to enhance the movement of motorists and bicyclists. The project includes lane narrowing, extended acceleration lanes, new traffic signals, bicycle-friendly shoulders, center line rumble strips, guide rail replacements, and wrong-way countermeasures. It spans from U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) to U.S. 202 with intersections at North New Street, Route 100 (Pottstown Pike), Penn Drive, Phoenixville Pike, and U.S. 202.

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.
