PennDOT Opens New Park-and-Ride at U.S. 30/U.S. 322 Interchange
Motorists can begin using a new 32-space park-and-ride located at the U.S. Route 30/U.S. Route 322 Interchange in Caln Township, Chester County, on Monday (June 30), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.
“This new park-and-ride facility in Chester County provides a convenient location along the Route 30 Bypass where commuters can take advantage of ride sharing opportunities by parking and joining friends or co-workers in car or van pools,” PennDOT District Executive Lester C. Toaso said.
The park-and-ride is located at the southeast corner of the Route 30/Route 322 Interchange. Motorists will enter the lot from Lloyd Avenue, just south from where Lloyd Avenue intersects Route 322 (Manor Avenue). Drivers will also exit onto Lloyd Avenue.
The Route 30/Route 322 park-and-ride was built as part of PennDOT’s congestion mitigation program for the expansion of U.S. Route 202 to six lanes in East Whiteland and Tredyffrin townships. Allan A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County, built the $400,000 facility as part of its $63.3 million contract to rebuild and widen Route 202 between the Route 401 and U.S. Route 30 interchanges.
The Route 30/Route 322 park-and-ride is the 15th opened by PennDOT in the five-county Philadelphia region and the eighth in Chester County.
