Route 202/Route 422 Interchange Resurfacing Begins This Week
WEST CHESTER (June 24) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced that construction began this week on a $ 4.4 million project to repair and resurface the U.S. Route 202 and U.S. Route 422 interchange in Tredyffrin and Upper Merion townships.
Dinniman said the Route 202 and Route 422 interchange was one of several major transportation infrastructure improvement projects that will break ground this summer due to the passage of the Commonwealth’s landmark transportation plan.
“Chester County is already beginning to see its share of transportation improvement projects as a result of passage of the new $2.1 billion transportation plan,” Dinniman said. “Projects like the Route 202 and Route 422 interchange resurfacing don’t just mean smoother and safer commutes for motorists, they will also provide a significant boost to our regional economy in the form of new jobs and millions of dollars in economic investment.”
The project entails removing areas of deteriorating concrete, patching and paving both highways and four ramps with asphalt. It is scheduled for completion in late November.
Specifically, crews will repair and resurface Route 202 between Route 252 (Valley Forge Road) and Interstate 76; Route 422 between Route 202 and Route 23; and the Route 202 North ramp on I-76 East, the Route 422 East ramp to I-76 East, the Route 202 North ramp to Route 422 West, and the Route 202 South ramp to Route 422 West.
Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on project, which is completely financed with state funds from Act 89 of 2014.
