King of Prussia, PA – A single lane closure with flagging is scheduled on Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) between Mosquito Lane and Penwyck Lane in London Grove Township, Chester County, on Monday, September 18, through Friday, September 22, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for resurfacing operations, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. The work schedule is weather dependent.
The work is part a project to improve travel and safety along Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) on the approach to the Route 841 (Chatham Road) Intersection by constructing a gateway at the north and south ends of the Village of Chatham. The project is scheduled to be completed in late December.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT is widening pavement to provide a curbed median that will serve as a gateway to the village; updating signing, pavement markings and drainage; and installing new guide rail.
This is the first of three projects that PennDOT is advancing to construction to improve travel and safety on Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) in Londonderry and London Grove townships. The Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike)/Route 841 (Chatham Road) and Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike)/Route 926 (Street Road) intersection improvement projects are currently in preliminary design.
Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on the $1,066,126 project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
