King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Turnpike is planning to close the bridge carrying Route 345 (Bulltown Road) over Interstate 76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike) in West Nantmeal Township, Chester County, beginning Tuesday, December 7, for bridge construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The closure, located between Yoder Road and Hedge Road, will be in place 24/7 through mid-November 2022.
During the closure, Bulltown Road motorists will be directed to use Route 82 (Manor Road) and Route 401 (Conestoga Road). Local access will be maintained up to the work zone.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike will complete this project under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.
Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
