U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) Lane Closures for Construction Work in Delaware, Chester Counties

King of Prussia, PA – U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) motorists will encounter lane closures in Chadds Ford and Concord townships, Delaware County, and Pennsbury Township, Chester County, for resurfacing operations and concrete patching under a project to repair and resurface approximately six miles of U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work locations and schedules are:

  • Monday, April 18, through Friday, April 22, a 24/7 lane closure is scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between Sunny Ridge Lane and Creek Road in Chadds Ford Township, Delaware County and Pennsbury Township, Chester County, for concrete patching operations;
  • Sunday, April 24, through Friday, May 6, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM, Sundays through Fridays, periodic lane closures are scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between Chadds Ford School Drive/Fairville Road and the U.S. 202 (Wilmington Pike) interchange in Chadds Ford Township, Delaware County, for milling operations; and
  • Sunday, April 24, through late May, a 24/7 lane closure is scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) between Pole Cat Road and the U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) Interchange in Concord Township, Delaware County, for concrete patching operations.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur due to these operations. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Under this project, PennDOT's contractor will mill, overlay, and rehabilitate the existing pavement; perform concrete patching and concrete base repair as needed; construct new concrete curbed median; install new pavement markings, rumble strips, delineators, and signs; and upgrade guiderail and curb ramps.

Allan Myers, LP of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $13.7 million project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting or downloading the 511PA mobile application. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
