U.S. 322 Section 101
In December 2020, PennDOT completed more than three years of construction on the U.S. 322 Section 101 project to widen and improve 2.5 miles of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) from U.S 1 (Baltimore Pike) to Clayton Park in Concord Township, Delaware County.
In addition to widening the heavily traveled east-west suburban artery to two eastbound and two westbound travel lanes, installing a grass median and widening shoulders, the Section 101 project included improvements to seven intersections within the project corridor.
Under this project, two U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) bridges - over Webb Creek/SEPTA lines and over Smithbridge Road â€” were replaced with new, wider structures. Five retaining walls were constructed to support the roadway and embankments in widened areas, and 1,500 feet of sound barrier wall was installed along the eastbound lanes between Station Road South and Cambridge Drive. Three dynamic message signs and six closed-circuit TV cameras were installed to optimize traffic flow along the corridor.
Section 101 is the first-of-four phases of the overall projects to improve travel and safety on a 6.7-mile section of U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) between U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) and Interstate 95 in Concord, Bethel and Upper Chichester townships.
