PennDOT Road Work Ahead This Week in ChesCo, MontCo

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Drivers traveling this week through portions of northern Chester and western Montgomery counties can expect to encounter a persistent single-lane closure in North and East Coventry townships due to road resurfacing, and intermittent lane closures in Upper Hanover Township and Pennsburg Borough caused by road construction, the Pennslyvania Department of Transportation said.

Travelers are advised to allow extra time when moving through the work areas. Slowdowns could occur, PennDOT warned. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.

In North and East Coventry

A single-lane closure will continue overnights from Monday through Friday (June 13-17, from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. on the following mornings, on Route 724 between Fricks Locks Road and Keim Street across North and East Coventry townships, according to PennDOT. Contractors will work there on milling and paving operations.

In this and seven other resurfacing projects elsewhere, the agency claimed it was spending more than $85 million milling the existing roadway surfaces and repaving the state highways with new asphalt to provide a smoother riding surface.

In Upper Hanover Township and Pennsburg Borough

Intermittent lane closures can be expected Monday through Friday (June 13-17), from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, on Route 663 between Route 29 and the interchange for Interstate 476 across Upper Hanover and Milford townships and Pennsburg Borough, PennDOT added. Contractors will install line striping and rumble strips.

The local construction is part of a PennDOT program to ensure the safety and overall condition of state highways, it said.
