U.S. 202, U.S. 30 Lane and Ramp Closures Scheduled at Night Next Week for Construction in Chester County
King of Prussia, PA – Lane and ramp restrictions will be in place on northbound U.S. 202 and the eastbound U.S. 30/Exton Bypass at night next week for construction activities that will complete replacement of the concrete pavement on the ramp from the Bypass to northbound U.S. 202 in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
On Wednesday, December 5, through Friday, December 7, from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, and to 9:00 AM Saturday, December 8, northbound U.S. 202 will be reduced from two-lanes-to-one between the Boot Road and Route 401 interchanges, and the ramp from eastbound U.S. 30/Exton Bypass to northbound U.S. 202 will be closed.
U.S. 30/Exton Bypass motorists heading to northbound U.S. 202 will be directed to exit at Business U.S. 30, turn right onto Business U.S. 30 and right onto the ramp to northbound U.S. 202.
The lane and ramp closures will allow crews to remove the temporary construction barriers on the ramp, re-align northbound U.S. 202 at the interchange, and paint new lane marking on the expressway and the ramp. The ramp will be re-opened to two lanes by 9:00 AM Saturday, December 8.
Construction on the ramp began last spring following replacement of the concrete pavement on the ramps from southbound U.S. 202 to Business 30 and the westbound U.S. 30/Exton Bypass.
PennDOT replaced the concrete pavement on the ramps to and from the Bypass and U.S. 202 as part of the $26.4 million contract currently underway to rehabilitate and re-deck the northbound and southbound U.S. 202 bridges over Amtrak at the southern end of the interchange.
Crews are wrapping-up work on the inside half of the southbound U.S. 202 bridge this fall and will begin work on the outer half of the bridge late this year. The entire project is expected to be completed in mid-2019.
Allan A Myers, Inc. of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.
