Construction Status: Spring 2016

Bridge Rehabilitation Starts

PennDOT has begun the rehabilitation and deck replacement of two deteriorated bridges carrying U.S. 202 over Amtrak rail lines just south of the U.S. 30 Interchange and reconstruction of the ramp pavement from U.S. 202 south to the westbound U.S. 30 Bypass in East and West Whiteland townships, Chester County.

Following construction of crossover, one northbound "express" lane has been shifted onto the southbound bridge. The other northbound lane remains on the northbound side behind construction barrier while the opposite side of the bridge is rebuilt. After the shift, work began to remove the concrete deck and parapets from the left side of the northbound bridge.

Crews also are removing and replacing the deteriorated concrete pavement from the outside lane of the ramp from U.S. 202 south to the westbound U.S. 30 Exton Bypass. While the ramp pavement is being removed and replaced, the ramp 's approach will remain one lane-wide. Repair of the outside ramp lane is expected to be finished this summer. Work will then move to the inside ramp lane during reconstruction of the left ramp lane.

Also at this time, the contractor will begin to rehabilitate the abutments for the Morstein Road bridge over U.S. 202, located south of the U.S. 30 Interchange.

Construction also will take place on Dunwoody Drive below the bridge to build retaining walls to support the bridge's southern abutments.
