Widening and Reconstruction in 2014

Construction on US Route 202 in 2014 continues along the entire the 6.5 mile Section 300 work area that stretches from just south of the Swedesford Road/Route 252 Interchange in Tredyffrin Township to the US Route 30/Exton Bypass Interchange in East Whiteland Township, Chester County. Reconstruction and widening on the northbound and southbound sides from the Mill Lane overpass, just north of Route 401, through to the Swedesford Road/Route 252 Interchange (Section 320) is finished. Crews will work into early fall to finish Section 320 construction by rebuilding the median and placing the new, permanent median barrier/glare screen while two lanes of traffic are riding on the rebuilt northbound and southbound sides of Section 320. Meanwhile, southbound widening and reconstruction continue through the end of the year from Mill Lane to Route 30. Get the details of current construction here

During all upcoming work on Route 202, PennDOT will maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction during periods of heavy use to minimize the impact of construction on users of the busy commuter route. We will continue to utilize this website to keep you informed about the progress of construction and any planned off-peak or weekend lane restrictions that may occur.

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.
