Bridge Construction Begins South of U.S. 30 Interchange

PennDOT has begun rehabilitation and deck replacement of two deteriorated bridges carrying U.S. 202 over Amtrak rail lines at the southern end of the U.S. 30 Interchange in East and West Whiteland townships, Chester County. This work is the final stage of the U.S. 202-300 project, Section 3RR. Read more about the bridge project here ... PennDOT in 2016 completed widening and reconstruction between the Route 401 and U.S. 30 interchanges, opening U.S. 202 to six lanes -- three northbound and three southbound -- from Interstate 76 in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, to the U.S. 30 Interchange in East Whiteland Township, Chester County.

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.

March 2017 - PennDOT will use an "express lane" traffic pattern like this one that places one lane of northbound traffic on the southbound bridge during Stage 1 construction to rehabilitate two U.S. 202 bridges over Amtrak just south of U.S. 30.
