Two U.S. 322 Intersections to Close for Widening and Improvement Project in Concord Township, Delaware County

 

King of Prussia, PA –  Station Road and Cambridge Road will be closed and detoured at U.S 322 (Conchester Highway) for intersection improvements as part of a major project to reconstruct, widen and upgrade traffic signals on a 2.5-mile section of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from U.S 1 (Baltimore Pike) to just east of Featherbed Lane/Mattson Road in Concord Township, Delaware County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

 

The work schedule is:

 

·         Monday, March 26, Station Road on the south side of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) will be closed for approximately four weeks for reconstruction of the roadway at the intersection with U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway). Motorists normally using Station Road will be directed to use Smithbridge Road, Concord Road and U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike).

 

·         Monday, April 2, Cambridge Drive will be closed for approximately seven weeks for reconstruction of the roadway at the intersection with U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway). Cambridge Drive motorists will be directed to use Marlborough Lane and Merion Lane. 

 

J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, Chester County, is the general contractor on the $62.6 million project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.

 

Engineering design is advancing for the widening, reconstruction and other improvements on U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from Clayton Park Drive to east of Route 452 (Market Street). Construction on this section is expected to start in 2019.

 

An additional contract to replace the U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) bridge over the CSX railroad and Bethel Road as well as improvements to the adjacent Bethel Road Interchange is under design.
