WEST CHESTER (January 28) – State Senator Andy Dinniman today announced that PennDOT plans to widen Route 100 to three travel lanes in each direction in Uwchlan and West Whiteland townships.

The project will consist of widening the roadway from two to three travel lanes along the 2.6 mile stretch of Route 100 between Shoen Road and Gordon Drive.

 

Construction bids are scheduled to be opened in November 2013. Work on the road itself is expected to begin in early 2014 and finish in fall 2015.

 

“This project along with the other transportation improvement projects currently underway in Chester County – the Route 202 widening, the Pennsylvania Turnpike widening and the recently completed Route 29 slip ramp – will help residents and commuters in our region travel more swiftly and safely, especially during peak hours,” Dinniman said.

 

In addition to widening the travel lanes, the Route 100 project plans also call for the following:

  • Removing inefficient jug handles.
  • Milling and repaving the roadway.
  • Upgrading traffic signals from Gordon Drive/Rutgers Drive to Shoen Road.
  • Improving signal timings and coordination, including maintaining the current closed loop signal system between intersections and the municipal building.
  • Constructing a proposed sidewalk from Ship Lane to Sharp Lane that will connect to the existing Uwchlan Trail System.

 

Uwchlan Township is administering the engineering design phase of the project. PennDOT will manage construction.
