WEST CHESTER (July 24, 2018) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced today that construction is set to begin this week on a project to repair and resurface 17 miles of state highway in Chester County.

“We continue to make great progress in updating and significantly improving our roads and highways throughout Chester County to provide a smoother, safer ride for residents, commuters, and families,” Dinniman, who serves on the Senate Transportation Committee, said. “This latest round of investments is a continuation of that ongoing effort.”

The roads are as follows:

  • Route 401 (Conestoga Road) between the Berks County line and Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) in Elverson Borough, and West Nantmeal, East Nantmeal and West Vincent townships.
  • Route 29 (Main Street/Manavon Street/Starr Street/Bridge Street) between Pothouse Road and the Montgomery County line in Schuylkill Township and Phoenixville Borough.
  • Route 345 (Pine Swamp Road) between Warwick Road and the Berks County line in Warwick Township.
  • Business U.S. 30 (Lancaster Avenue) from south of Route 113 (Uwchlan Avenue) to north of Cornerstone Boulevard in Downingtown Borough and East Caln Township.
  • Dorlan Mill Road from Route 282 (Creek Road) to just north of Longfields Way in East Brandywine and Upper Uwchlan townships.

Under the $3.5 million project, the existing roadway will be milled and repaved with new asphalt to seal the roadway and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

The Route 401 portion of the project will begin on Thursday, July 26, and the entire project is expected to be completed by December.

The project, contracted to Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County, is financed 100 percent by state funds made possible by Act 89 of 2013, Pennsylvania’s Comprehensive Transportation Funding Plan.
