PennDOT has announced that lane closures are scheduled on U.S. 202 for construction related to the rehabilitation of two U.S. 202 bridges over Amtrak rail lines.
The work schedule is:
- Sunday, March 26, through Thursday, March 30, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane closures are scheduled on northbound and southbound U.S. 202 between the U.S. 30 and Boot Road interchanges; and
- Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 AM, lane closures are scheduled on northbound and southbound U.S. 202 between the U.S. 30 and Boot Road interchanges.
In order to maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction on U.S. 202 at all times, construction will be completed in five stages to utilize an Express Lane traffic shift. A temporary traffic pattern will be implemented to carry one lane on the bridge under construction and a second lane on the adjacent bridge, where concrete barriers will separate the lane from the two travel lanes heading in the opposite direction.
Preparations will then be made to shift one lane over of northbound traffic to the southbound side of U.S. 202, where concrete barriers will separate if from the two lanes of southbound traffic. The second northbound lane will remain on the northbound bridge behind construction barrier as the opposite side is rehabilitated under Stage 1 of the bridge work. Once half the northbound bridge is reconstructed, the northbound lane will be shifted onto the newly reconstructed half, and the opposite side of the bridge will be rehabilitated under Stage 2.
