January 3, 2020 - Periodic flagger-controlled lane closures and brief stoppages may be in place Mondays through Fridays between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM through late 2020 on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) to just east of Clayton Park Drive in Concord Township, Delaware County, for construction on the $62.2 million project to improve and widen the highway.
Motorists should anticipate delays on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway), allow extra time for travel through the work areas, or use an alternate route.
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.
Engineering design is advancing for the widening and reconstruction of the eastern section (Section 102) of the highway from just east of Clayton Park Drive to just east of Route 452 (Market Street). An additional contract to replace the U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) bridge over the CSX railroad and Bethel Road and improveme the adjacent Bethel Road Interchange also is under design.
