The ramp from eastbound U.S. 30/Exton Bypass to U.S. 202 north in East Whiteland and West Whiteland townships, Chester County, will be reduced from two-lanes-to-one for approximately nine months beginning next weekend for replacement of deteriorated concrete pavement, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Crews will set up the single-lane traffic pattern on the ramp overnight Friday, April 6, following nighttime lane restrictions earlier in the week on northbound and southbound U.S. 202 for construction at the interchange.
Beginning Monday morning, April 9, motorists on eastbound U.S. 30/Exton Bypass approaching U.S. 202 should allow extra time for travel through the work area, or use an alternate route, as significant backups are expected during the morning and afternoon rush hours through late fall for the duration of the ramp repair operation.
Weather permitting, the work schedule is:
• Thursday, April 5, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM Friday, April 6, northbound U.S. 202 will be reduced to a single lane between the Boot Road and Route 401 interchanges for adjustments to the traffic pattern at the work zone; and
• Friday, April 6, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 AM Saturday, April 7, the ramp from the U.S. 30/Exton Bypass to northbound U.S. 202 will be closed as crews set up the long-term traffic pattern that will reduce the ramp to a single lane for replacement of deteriorated concrete. U.S. 30 motorists heading for U.S. 202 north will be directed to exit at Business U.S. 30, turn right on Business U.S. 30, then turn right onto the ramp to northbound U.S. 202.
