The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that preliminary construction is scheduled to begin Monday, March 20, on the first of two mainline projects to widen and reconstruct a 6.7-mile section of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) to just east of Route 452 (Market Street) in Concord, Bethel and Upper Chichester townships, Delaware County.
Beginning Monday, March 20, through Friday, March 24, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) motorists will encounter single lane conditions between U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) and Evergreen Drive, for clearing operations. Traffic will be controlled by flagging.
In addition, the bridge carrying U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) over SEPTA/Webb Creek and the bridge over Smith Bridge Road will be replaced. Five retaining walls and a sound barrier will also be constructed in this section.
During construction, U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) between U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) and Clayton Park Drive will remain open to one lane of traffic in each direction during peak travel times. Periodic flagger-controlled lane restrictions may occur Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for various operations as construction advances along the corridor.
