CHADDS FORD, PA — U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) motorists will encounter continuous lane restrictions on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) in both directions between Chadds Ford School Drive/Fairville Road and U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike) beginning at 9:00 AM Tuesday, July 5, through Friday, July 8, for various construction activities under a project to repair and resurface approximately six miles of the highway in Chadds Ford and Concord townships, Delaware County, and Pennsbury Township, Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.

In addition, a section of Thornton Road between Concord Road and U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) remains closed for roadway construction through Friday, July 22.

Northbound Thornton Road motorists will be directed to use Concord Road and U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike), while southbound Thornton Road motorists will still have access to southbound U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike). Local access will be maintained for residents and businesses.

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

Under this U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) improvement project, PennDOT states that its contractor will mill, overlay, and rehabilitate the existing pavement; perform concrete patching and concrete base repair as needed; construct new concrete curbed median; install new pavement markings, rumble strips, delineators, and signs; and upgrade guiderail and curb ramps.

Allan Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $13.7 million project, which is financed with 80% federal and 20% state funds. Physical construction on the project is expected to finish this fall.
