Rt 202 and PA turnpike - Spring time construction

You may want to  rethink your commute this Spring - couple of projects in Chester county...

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists that the Mill Road bridge over the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76) in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County will close to traffic the morning of March 21.
The passenger car and truck detour will stay in effect until November.  The contractor anticipates the new bridge will be open to traffic before the end of the year. The bridge is located 3.5 miles west of the Valley Forge Interchange (Exit #326) and 10.5 miles east of the Downingtown Interchange (Exit #312).  The detours will redirect traffic to Duport trail, Swedesford, Rte 252 and other local roads.  Please visit PaTurnpike for more and updated information on the project.

Rte 202 reconstruction is expected to restart on March 13.  Construction crews will rehabilitate and resurface Route 202 between the Route 100 Interchange and High Street in West Goshen and Westtown townships.  Please visit the Daily Local News for more information on the timings and detours.

Yes, it is terribly inconvenient but will help in the long run.  Something else to look forward to -  The new Route 29 All-Electronic Interchange expected to relieve congestion on the Rte. 202 corridor between the Valley Forge and Downingtown exits on the turnpike.

Happy commuting folks!  Please share your stories to help fellow travelers.
