The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has begun work on a seven-month, $5.2 million project to repair and resurface six miles of the Route 30 Bypass between the Route 82 and Route 10 interchanges in Valley, West Caln, and Sadsbury townships, Chester County.
"Over the next seven months crews will work to remove deteriorated sections of concrete pavement and resurface the four-lane bypass with an asphalt overlay," said George Dunheimer, P.E., PennDOT's assistant district executive for construction. "This preventative maintenance project is the third in our series of investments to prolong the life of this critical highway and to improve the riding surface for the thousands of motorists who travel it daily."
Beginning March 13 and lasting for approximately two weeks, eastbound and westbound travel on Route 30 will be reduced to one lane in each direction weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The right lane will be closed in each direction while crews repair the shoulders alongside the roadway.
In early April, round-the-clock lane closures will start on the eastbound and westbound Route 30 Bypass when crews begin to remove and replace deteriorated concrete.
The concrete replacement operation will begin on the western end of the bypass and there will be single-lane pattern in each direction. Initially, the right lane will be closed in each direction from just west of Airport Road to the western end of the bypass.
