Route 202 Nighttime Lane Closures Next Week

The closures are scheduled Sunday through Wednesday.

The following was provided to Patch by PennDOT:

Nighttime lane closures are scheduled on northbound U.S. Route 202 between Route 252 (Valley Forge Road) and Interstate 76 in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, and Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, on Sunday through Wednesday (June 29-July 2) for pavement patching, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said today.

This operation is part of the $4.4 million project that began June 23, 2014, to repair and resurface Route 202 and U.S. Route 422 where the two expressways connect. The improvement project is financed from Act 89, the state’s landmark transportation plan. 

Northbound Route 202 lane closures will be in effect Sunday through Wednesday (June 29-July 2) from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Crews also may patch the northbound Route 202 off-ramp to Interstate 76 East during the overnight hours. 

Motorists are advised to use extra care when driving through the Route 202 work zone and allow additional time for travel as slowdowns will occur during construction.

There will be no construction-related lane closures on this project from 5 a.m. Thursday (July 3) to 8 p.m. Monday, July 7 due to the Independence Day holiday. 

Crews will work through late November to improve Route 202 and Route 422 by removing areas of deteriorating concrete, patching, and paving both highways and four ramps with asphalt. 

The pavement improvement plan covers Route 202 between Route 252 (Valley Forge Road) and I-76; Route 422 between Route 202 and Route 23; and the Route 202 North ramp to I-76 East, Route 422 East ramp to I-76 East, Route 202 North ramp to Route 422 West, and Route 202 South ramp to Route 422 West. 

Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $4,395,855 contract, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89. 

Funding provided by Act 89 will enable PennDOT to make significant progress in addressing major roadway, bridge and transit needs across the Philadelphia region, including projects starting this year to resurface 100 miles of rough pavement and rehabilitate 28 deteriorated bridges in the five-county area.

By its fifth year, Act 89 will generate an additional $2.3 billion to $2.4 billion a year in added statewide transportation investment across all modes.
