WEST CHESTER (August 23) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced that work will begin tomorrow on a $2.2 million project to resurface and repair almost 10 miles of roadway on four state highways in Chester County.

PennDOT’s contractor, Allan A. Myers, will mill the existing deteriorated riding surface and place new asphalt pavement on the following:

  • asphalt-road-with-yellow-road-lines-picjumbo-comRoute 724 (Schuylkill Road) between the Berks County line and Whartnaby Street in North Coventry.
  • U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between Greenwood Avenue and Cypress Street/State Street in Kennett and East Marlborough.
  • Route 113 (Bridge Street/Franklin Avenue/Emmett Street/Black Rock Road) between Route 23 (Nutt Road) and the Montgomery County line in Phoenixville Borough and Schuylkill.
  • Waterloo Road between Newtown Road and Conestoga Road in Easttown.

“These resurfacing projects mean a smoother and safer commute for motorists on some of our most well-traveled roads and highways,” Dinniman said.

Work on Route 724 will begin tomorrow (Wednesday, August 24) and continue Thursday, August 25, with crews working from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
