Travel Advisory
June 4, 2018 - King of Prussia, PA.

Lane shift to start Friday, June 8, and continue through early July

King of Prussia, PA – Route 29 (Morehall Road) will be reduced to one travel lane in each direction between the Pennsylvania Turnpike Interchange and Atwater Drive/General Warren Boulevard in East Whiteland and Charlestown townships, Chester County, beginning Friday, June 8, through early July, for construction activities related to an improvement project to reconstruct a portion of the highway, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

Under this improvement project. crews are working to correct existing sinkhole and pavement subsidence issues.

During construction, all traffic will be shifted to the southbound side of Route 29 (Morehall Road), with one northbound lane and one southbound lane available.

Route 29 (Morehall Road) motorists as well as motorists exiting the Pennsylvania Turnpike are advised to allow extra time when traveling through this work zone because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is weather dependent.

In addition, motorists will encounter weekday lane closures next week on Route 29 (Morehall Road) between Atwater Drive and Yellow Springs Road. The work schedule is:

· Monday, June 4, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a right lane closure is scheduled on southbound Route 29 (Morehall Road) between Yellow Springs Road and Atwater Drive;

· Tuesday, June 5, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a right lane closure is scheduled in both directions on Route 29 (Morehall Road) between Atwater Drive and Yellow Springs Road; and

· Wednesday, June 6, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a right lane closure is scheduled on southbound Route 29 (Morehall Road) between Yellow Springs Road and Atwater Drive.

PennDOT is working to minimize future sinkhole problems by constructing geotechnical treatments and roadway drainage improvements to prevent surface water infiltration and provide structural support to the roadway. The project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2018.

Allan A. Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $2,592,555 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
