Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - LOCAL NEWS - Staff Re­port

Lane re­stric­tions are planned on three state high­ways in Ch­ester County, for high-fric­tion sur­face treat­ment, the Penn­syl­va­nia De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion (Pen­nDOT) an­nounced.

The work sched­ule for next week, weather per­mit­ting, is:

• Monday, Oct. 10, through Fri­day, Oct. 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., lane re­stric­tions are sched­uled on Route 52 (Le­nape Road) be­tween Edgemill Way and Shrop­shire Drive in East Brad­ford;

• Monday, Oct. 10, through Fri­day, Oct. 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., lane re­stric­tions are sched­uled on Route 401 (Con­estoga Road) be­tween St. Matthews Road and Rachel Drive in West Vin­cent; and

• Monday, Oct. 10, through Fri­day, Oct. 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., lane re­stric­tions are sched­uled on Ship Road be­tween Swedes­ford Road and Old Val­ley Road in West White­land.

Pen­nDot said the work is part of a $4.8 mil­lion resur­fac­ing project to im­prove travel and safety on 25 state high­ways in Bucks, Ch­ester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadel­phia coun­ties, by in­stalling a high-fric­tion sur­face treat­ment to pro­vide in­creased fric­tion and grip on pave­ments in wet and dry con­di­tions.

The en­tire project is sched­uled to fin­ish in July 2017.

J.D. Eck­man, Inc. of At­glen, is the gen­eral con­trac­tor on the project, which is fi­nanced with 80 per­cent fed­eral and 20 per­cent state funds.

In ad­di­tion, state Sen. An­drew Din­ni­man, D-19, an­nounced that crews are al­ready be­gin­ning work on a sep­a­rate project to resur­face and re­pair more than 13 miles of state high­way in Ch­ester County. Din­ni­man is run­ning for re-elec­tion against Repub­li­can Jack Lon­don.

Work on that project is as fol­lows:

Route 401 (Con­estoga Road) be­tween French Bridge and Iron Stone Lane in West Nant­meal.

Route 842 (Creek Road) be­tween Brandy­wine Creek and Brandy­wine Street in East Brad­ford.

U.S. 202 (Wilm­ing­ton Pike) be­tween U.S. 322 and Dil­worth­town Road in West Goshen, West­town, Thorn­bury, and Birm­ing­ham.

West Miner Street be­tween Brandy­wine Street and South High Street in West Ch­ester.

Route 926 (Street Road) be­tween Cheyney Road and Route 3 (West Ch­ester Pike) in Wil­lis­town, West­town, and Thorn­bury.

U.S. 30 ramps at the Route 82 in­ter­change in Val­ley and at the Reeceville Road in­ter­change in Caln.

“All of these projects mark im­por­tant in­vest­ments in pro­vid­ing a smoother, safer ride for mo­torists and commuters,” Din­ni­man said. “Ch­ester County and Penn­syl­va­nia are mark­ing great progress with up­dat­ing and sig­nif­i­cantly im­prov­ing our trans­porta­tion in­fra­struc­ture.”

Un­der this $3.3 mil­lion project, Pen­nDOT will mill off the ex­ist­ing sur­face and repave the state high­ways with new as­phalt. The new pave­ment will seal the road­ways and pro­vide mo­torists with a smoother rid­ing sur­face. Work is sched­uled to be com­pletely by July.

This project, con­tracted to Al­lan A. My­ers, LP or Worces­ter, Montgomery County, is fi­nanced by Act 89 of 2013, Penn­syl­va­nia’s Com­pre­hen­sive Trans­porta­tion Fund­ing Plan.

Mo­torists can check con­di­tions on more than 40,000 road­way miles by vis­it­ing 511PA, which is free and avail­able 24 hours a day, pro­vides traf­fic de­lay warn­ings, weather fore­casts, traf­fic speed in­for­ma­tion and ac­cess to more than 770 traf­fic cam­eras.

511PA is also avail­able through a smart­phone ap­pli­ca­tion for iPhone and An­droid de­vices, by calling 5-11, or by fol­low­ing re­gional twit­ter alerts ac­ces­si­ble on the 511PA web­site.
