Wolf Administration Announces Work to Begin on Project to Repair and Resurface 40 Miles of State Highway in Chester County

 

 

"When it comes to resurfacing, the investment is worth the return,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “Projects like this are critical to maintaining our infrastructure and a quality of life improvement for residents of Chester County.”

 

 

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because slowdowns will occur. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.

 

Additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:

 

·        Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) between the U.S. 1 ramps to Route 10 (Limestone Road) in London Grove, Londonderry and West Fallowfield townships;

·        Route 52 (Lenape Road) between Route 926 (Street Road) and Creek Road in Pennsbury, Pocopson and Birmingham townships;

·        Route 472 (Hickory Hill Road/Market Street/Lancaster Avenue/Lancaster Pike) between Freese Road and the Lancaster County line in East Nottingham and Lower Oxford townships and Oxford Borough;

·        Northbrook Road between Brandywine Drive and Route 842 (Unionville Wawaset Road) in West Bradford and Pocopson townships;

·        Cypress Street/Baltimore Pike/State Street from west of Thompson Road to west of Mill Road in New Garden and Kennett townships;

·        5th Avenue/Elm Street/Black Horse Road/Black Horse Hill Road between Business U.S. 30 (Lincoln Highway) and Caln Road in the City of Coatesville and Valley and Caln townships;

·        Chadds Ford Road/Creek Road between the Delaware state line and the Delaware County line in Pennsbury Township;

·        Faggs Manor Road between Route 926 (Street Road) and Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) in Londonderry Township.

 

Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

 

Allan A. Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $7,959,000 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s Transportation Plan.

 

Work on the project is expected to be completed in October 2018.
