Traffic Pattern Change on SB Ramp to Rt. 401
Traffic Pattern Change Scheduled on U.S. 202 South Ramp to Route 401 in East Whiteland Township, Chester County
A traffic pattern change will go into effect Monday (March 24) on the U.S. Route 202 South off-ramp to Route 401 (Conestoga Road) in East Whiteland Township, for ramp and sound wall construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.
Beginning Monday (March 24), the exclusive right turn lane from Route 202’s southbound off-ramp to westbound Route 401 (Conestoga Road) will be closed and all left-and-right-hand turns from the ramp onto Route 401 (Conestoga Road) will be controlled at a stop sign. There will be a lane for both left and right turns at the intersection.
This traffic pattern on the Route 202 southbound off-ramp at Route 401 (Conestoga Road) will remain in place until the next stage of ramp construction starts later this year and a traffic signal is installed at the intersection.
The reconstruction of the off-ramp and the installation of a sound wall are part of PennDOT’s $63.3 million project to widen 2.5 miles of Route 202 to six lanes between the Route 401 and Route 30 interchanges. Crews are currently rebuilding and widening the southbound side of Route 202. Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the project, which is scheduled to finish in May 2016.
This project, which began in April 2013, is the second and final mainline construction contract for PennDOT’s widening of 6.5 miles of Route 202 from just south of the Route 252 Interchange to the Route 30 Interchange.
The expansion of Route 202 from north of the Route 401 Interchange to the Route 252/Swedesford Road Interchange in Tredyffrin Township began in April 2011 and is scheduled to finish this fall. Richard E. Pierson Construction Company, Inc. of Woodstown, N.J. is the general contractor.
