Route 113 lane restrictions scheduled next week
DOWNINGTOWN >> Daytime and nighttime lane restrictions are scheduled in both directions on Route 113 (Uwchlan Avenue) between Business U.S. 30 (Lancaster Avenue) and Peck Road/Whitford Hills Road in Downingtown Borough and Uwchlan Township, on Sunday, Oct. 14, through Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., for milling, paving, and utility installation, as part of a project to repair and resurface seven miles of Route 113 (Uwchlan Avenue) in Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because slowdowns will occur. The contractor’s schedule is dependent on the weather.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill the existing roadway surface and repave with new asphalt, a seven-mile section of Route 113 (Uwchlan Avenue) from Business U.S 30 (Lancaster Avenue) to Gordon Drive in Downingtown Borough, Uwchaln and East Caln townships. The new pavement will seal the roadway and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
Highway Materials, Inc. of Flourtown, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $2,522,579 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s Transportation Plan.
