King of Prussia, PA – Daytime and nighttime lane closures are scheduled next week on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) to just east of Clayton Park Drive in Concord Township, Delaware County, for construction related to a $62.7 million project to improve and widen the highway, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
On Monday, June 19, through Friday, June 23, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, flaggers will direct an alternating single lane of traffic on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) through various work areas along the 2.6-mile construction zone.
Motorists should expect delays on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) and on northbound U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) approaching U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway), allow extra time for travel through the work areas, or use an alternate route. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
PennDOT began construction March 20, on the first-of-two mainline projects to widen and reconstruct a 6.7-mile section of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) to just east of Route 452 (Market Street) in Concord, Bethel and Upper Chichester townships, Delaware County.
U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) will remain open to one lane of traffic in each direction during peak travel times. Periodic flagger-controlled lane restrictions may occur Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM, for various operations as construction advances along the corridor.
Work on the first mainline section of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) is scheduled to be completed in late 2020.
J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, Chester County, is the general contractor on the project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
Engineering design is advancing for the widening and reconstruction of the eastern section (Section 102) of the highway from just east of Clayton Park Drive to just east of Route 452 (Market Street). Construction on this section is expected to start in 2019.
An additional contract to replace the U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) bridge over the CSX railroad and Bethel Road as well as improvements to the adjacent Bethel Road Interchange is under design and not yet scheduled for construction.
