King of Prussia, PA – The intersection of Fellowship Drive and Station Road North in Concord Township, Delaware County, will close at approximately 9:00 AM on Monday, August 7, for construction activities related to a roadway, maintenance and environmental mitigation enhancement project, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The intersection closure will be in place through October 2018.
Motorists will be directed to use Concord Road, U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) and U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway). The south side of the Fellowship Drive and U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) Intersection will remain open.
During the 15-month closure, crews will complete excavation for the wetland mitigation site currently under construction on the north side of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway). The section of Fellowship Drive on the north side also will be rebuilt as part of the wetland mitigation project, which is being done in conjunction with the on-going improvement and widening of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway).
PennDOT is building a pad site for the future maintenance facility to be located on Station Road North near the intersection with U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) in Concord Township. This facility will replace the existing PennDOT maintenance facility on Route 261 (Foulk Road) at the U.S. 322 Interchange in Bethel Township, which will be removed for the widening of U.S. 322.
The contractor is also realigning Station Road North to improve access to the new maintenance site and increasing the storage volume for an adjacent storm water basin; constructing a concrete arch structure and adjacent retaining walls over an unnamed tributary to Webb Creek; upgrading guide rail, new signing and pavement markings; and performing traffic signal adjustments at the U.S. 322 intersections with Station Road North and Fellowship Drive.
In addition to construction, PennDOT’s contractor will create 2.33 acres of new wetlands to expand an existing wetland site in Thornbury Township, Delaware County, to compensate for impacts to existing wetlands along the U.S. 322 corridor.
The entire project is expected to be completed in fall 2018.
Road-Con, Inc., of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on the $7,343,510 project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
