WEST CHESTER (August 8, 2018) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced today that PennDOT is set to begin work on repaving seven miles of Route 113 in Chester County.

Construction is scheduled to begin later this summer on a $2.5 million project to repair and resurface on Route 113 (Uwchlan Avenue) between Business Route 30 (East Lancaster Avenue) and Gordon Drive in Downingtown, East Caln, and Uwchlan.

“This stretch of Route 113 is a major and well-traveled thoroughfare in our region,” Dinniman, who serves on the Senate Transportation Committee, said. “These improvements mean a safer, smooth ride for commuters and residents.”

Under the project, the existing roadway will be milled and repaved with new asphalt. It is expected to be completed by December.

This project, contracted to Highway Materials of Flourtown, Montgomery County, is financed 100 percent by state funds made possible by Act 89 of 2013, Pennsylvania’s Comprehensive Transportation Funding Plan.
