Rt. 202 widening spurs lane closures

Overnight lane closures will be in effect next week as work proceeds on part of the $105 million project to add a third travel lane in each direction on Route 202 in East Whiteland and Tredyffrin Townships, PennDot said today.

Northbound Route 202 will be reduced from two lanes to one between the Route 401 and Route 29 interchanges on Monday through Friday from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Crews will work at night to relocate barriers and pave in the area of the Route 401 northbound on-ramp, and to install drainage inlets. This work is weather-dependent, and motorists are advised to allow additional time for travel on northbound Route 202 during construction.

PennDot is reconstructing four miles of Route 202 to add a third lane in each direction from just south of the Route 252 interchange in Tredyffrin Township to just north of the Route 401 interchange in East Whiteland Township. This is the first of two construction contracts to rebuild and expand 6.5 miles of Route 202 from just south of the Route 252 interchange to the Route 30/Exton Bypass interchange. The second contract, which runs from just north of the Route 401 interchange to the Route 30/Exton Bypass, is scheduled to begin in early 2013 and finish in late 2015.
