Dinniman: PennDOT Resurfacing, Improving 8 State Highways in Chester County
WEST CHESTER (October 7) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced today that PennDOT will begin resurfacing and improving the safety of three state highways in Chester County next week – in addition to several other road repaving and repair projects already getting underway here.
“All of these projects mark important investments in providing a smoother, safer ride for motorists and commuters,” Dinniman said. “Chester County and Pennsylvania are making great progress in updating and significantly improving our transportation infrastructure.”
The projects beginning Monday, October 10, will improve travel and safety by installing a high-friction surface treatment to provide increased friction and grip on pavement in wet and dry conditions. They are as follows:
- High-friction resurfacing of Route 52 (Lenape Road) between Edgemill Way and Shropshire Drive in East Bradford.
- High-friction resurfacing of Ship Road between Swedesford Road and Old Valley Road in West Whiteland.
- High-friction resurfacing of Route 401 (Conestoga Road) between St. Matthews Road and Rachel Drive in West Vincent.
This work is part of a larger project to improve safety on 25 state highways in Chester, Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia by installing high-friction surface treatment. The $4.8 million project, contracted to J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, is financed by 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
In addition, crews are already beginning work on a separate project to resurface and repair more than 13 miles of state highway in Chester County. Work on that project is as follows:
- Route 401 (Conestoga Road) between French Bridge and Iron Stone Lane in West Nantmeal.
- Route 842 (Creek Road) between Brandywine Creek and Brandywine Street in East Bradford.
- U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike) between U.S. 322 and Dilworthtown Road in West Goshen, Westtown, Thornbury, and Birmingham.
- West Miner Street between Brandywine Street and South High Street in West Chester.
- Route 926 (Street Road) between Cheyney Road and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in Willistown, Westtown, and Thornbury.
- U.S. 30 ramps at the Route 82 Interchange in Valley and at the Reeceville Road Interchange in Caln.
Under this $3.3 million project, PennDOT will mill off the existing surface and repave the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface. Work is scheduled to be completely by July.
This project, contracted to Allan A. Myers, LP or Worcester, Montgomery County, is financed by Act 89 of 2013, Pennsylvania’s Comprehensive Transportation Funding Plan.
