Line-painting may prompt lines of traffic

Road repairs could also create jams, PennDOT warns

Line-painting trucks, lane restrictions, and lane closures are among the potential traffic-jammers on tap for area residents, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The agency said slow-moving painting vehicles will be working throughout the county from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. next week. In addition, PennDOT identified the following potential troublespots:

Paving on US-202 in Westtown and West Goshen Townships will continue with lane closures between Matlack Street and Route 100 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. The road’s shoulders will be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Concrete repair on Market and Gay Streets in West Chester will require lane restrictions between Matlack and Worthington Streets from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Southbound Route 100 in West Goshen Township will be reduced to one lane through November near the US-202 ramp for sound-wall construction.

Intermittent land closures for road improvements are planned for US-1 in Kennett Township between Greenwood and Hamorton Cutoff Roads from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until May 25.

Utility relocation and shoulder work will create brief stoppages on Route 52 in Pennsbury Township between US-1 and Route 926 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. through September.

Concrete repair will spur lane restrictions on US-1 in both directions between Kennett Pike and Route 796. The work, which will be done from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., will affect motorists in New Garden, East Marlborough, Kennett, and London Grove Townships.
