Route 322 Construction Update - 3/17/2017

Date: March 20, 2017

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.
