Dinniman Announces 2014 Transportation Projects
WEST CHESTER (April 7) – State Senator Andy Dinniman today announced that seven major Chester County projects are slated to break ground this spring and summer in large part due to November’s passage of the new $2.1 billion transportation plan.
“This spring some of the Commonwealth’s most important transportation construction and improvement projects will begin right here in Chester County,” Dinniman said. “Investments in our transportation infrastructure support our local economy through job growth and retention, while providing a smoother, safer and less-congested commute for motorists, families and local employees.”
The projects are as follows:
- Route 100 will be widened to three lanes in each direction between Exton and Lionville. The $17 million project will begin this spring.
- The full-width of the interchange of Route 202 and Route 422 between Tredyffrin Township and Merion Township will be resurfaced. The $5 million project will span 3.5 miles and will begin this spring.
- The intersection of Route 252 and Route 30 will be improved. The $1.3 million will begin this summer.
- The full width of Route 252 will be resurfaced from Whitehorse Road at the Delaware County line to Route 30 in Tredyffrin. The $2.5 million project will span 4.4 miles and will begin this spring.
In addition, three structurally deficient bridges in Chester County will be repaired. They are as follows:
- The Route 23/Valley Forge Road Bridge over the Pickering Creek in Schuylkill Township will be rehabilitated. Construction will begin this spring.
- The Horseshoe Pike Bridge over the Brandywine Creek in Honey Brook Township will be rehabilitated. Construction will begin this spring.
- The Fern Hill Road Bridge over Route 202 in West Goshen Township will be rehabilitated. Construction will begin this spring.
Dinniman also said he continues to work with PennDOT to ensure that roadway damage from winter weather is quickly repaired and that the upcoming projects receive the support they need to be completed on or ahead of schedule.
