Utility Work on U.S. 1 to Cause Traffic Delays in Chester County

Lane closures

CHESTER COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that utility relocation will continue next week on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike). This is part of a $10.4 million project to widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of the highway from the Kennett Oxford Bypass to Greenwood Road in Kennett and East Marlborough townships, Chester County.

Weekday lane closures are scheduled from Tuesday, May 28, through Wednesday, August 28, between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM on both northbound and southbound U.S. 1 from Greenwood Road to just south of Schoolhouse Road. Motorists should allow extra time when traveling through the work area as traffic backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

This project includes milling and overlaying U.S. 1, constructing a third travel lane in each direction, building sidewalks along the north side from Schoolhouse Road to the Longwood Village Shopping Center entrance, eliminating the left turn from Orchard Avenue onto U.S. 1, installing two new Dynamic Message Signs, and upgrading five signalized intersections within the corridor.

Allan Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor for this federally funded project.
