King of Prussia, PA – U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) motorists will encounter lane closures in Chadds Ford and Concord townships, Delaware County, for concrete patching and resurfacing under a project to repair and resurface approximately six miles of U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work locations and schedules are:
- Sunday, May 15, through Saturday, May 21, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM, periodic lane closures are scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between Chadds Ford School Drive/Fairville Road and the U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike) interchange for milling and paving operations; and
- Monday, May 16 through Saturday, May 21, a 24-hour left lane closure is scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between Pole Cat Road and Thornton Road for concrete patching; and
- 9:00 PM Friday, May 20, to 9:00 PM Sunday, May 22, a lane closure is scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) and Painters Crossing for survey operations.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur due to these operations. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under this project, PennDOT's contractor will mill, overlay, and rehabilitate the existing pavement; perform concrete patching and concrete base repair as needed; construct new concrete curbed median; install new pavement markings, rumble strips, delineators, and signs; and upgrade guiderail and curb ramps.
Allan Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $13.7 million project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
