King of Prussia, PA - Periodic daytime lane closures and stoppages will occur this week on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) in Concord Township, Delaware County as crews set up a new traffic pattern that marks the substantial completion of Stage 1 construction on the $62.2 million project to widen and improve 2.6 miles of the highway, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.
Flagger-controlled lane closures and brief stoppages will be in place on Wednesday, December 19, through Friday, December 21, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, between U.S.1 (Baltimore Pike) and Fellowship Drive. The restrictions will allow crews to move temporary construction barriers and complete other tasks as they shift a lane of eastbound and westbound traffic onto the recently-widened eastbound side of the highway in that area.
Work crews in early 2019 will begin Stage 2 work that will widen and improve the westbound side of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) in the area of the new traffic pattern.
Stage 1 construction will continue until next spring on the eastbound side of U.S. 322 between Fellowship Drive and Clayton Park Drive.
Motorists should expect delays on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) and allow extra time for travel through the work areas or use an alternate route. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
PennDOT began construction in spring 2017 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. 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.
