Six Lanes Now Open from Route 401 to U.S. 30

PennDOT opened U.S. 202 to six lanes -- three northbound and three southbound -- on Aug. 3, 2016, substantially completing widening and reconstruction between the Route 401 and U.S. Route 30 interchanges in East Whiteland Township (Section 330). Additional construction to replace the decks of the separate northbound and southbound U.S. 202 bridges over rail lines just south of the U.S. 30 interchange is expected to begin in early 2017. PennDOT will maintain two lanes in each direction during upcoming work on the bridges. More details to come...

Q. When will the railroad bridge be repainted?

A. The bridge will be repainted as part of Section 320 construction. Originally, the bridge was to be repainted under the Section 311 project. But that plan would have required extensive and expensive traffic control measures, with nighttime lane closures to sand blast and repaint small sections in time to reopen the lane by the following morning. Instead, the bridge will be sanded and repainted in larger sections when traffic is shifted for extended periods while the roadway is rebuilt, all at a significant savings.
