Route 202 Night Restrictions for Paving Near West Chester

Route 202 construction will continue next week.

The following is a press release from PennDOT.

The final paving operation on the $19.3 million improvement of Route 202 in West Goshen and Westtown townships, Chester County, will slow nighttime travel between Matlack Street and Route 100 on Sunday through Thursday (April 29-May 3) from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.

Route 202 will be restricted to one lane in each direction each night as crews place the final layer of asphalt on this stretch of the four-lane highway. Route 202 motorists are advised to allow more time for travel or use an alternate route during construction because backups and delays will occur.

PennDOT is nearing completion of construction on this 4.3-mile section of Route 202. The project is scheduled to finish in late May 2012.

PennDOT is improving Route 202 by replacing deteriorated concrete pavement and resurfacing the four-lane expressway; reinforcing the roadway shoulders; patching and repairing eight bridges; painting steel beams on three bridges; removing and replacing five overhead sign structures; installing new highway signs; installing new guide rail and median barriers; and installing safety rumble strips and pavement reflectors.

Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $19,377,081 project. The project is financed with 100 percent federal ARRA funds.

PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to www.511pa.com or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions on Route 202 and other major highways before heading out.

Okay, they actually have been working on 202, but what's the story with 100 that has been one lane with no movement for months until just recently? Equipment, that should have rusted from lack of use, sat there behind barriers.
