King of Prussia, PA – U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) motorists may encounter intermittent flagging operations between Sugars Bridge Road and Valley Creek Road in East Bradford and West Bradford townships, Chester County, on Wednesday, October 9, through Friday, October 11, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for shoulder excavation under a project to replace the bridge carrying U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) over the east branch of Brandywine Creek, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area. The schedule is weather dependent.
This project was driven by the need to replace the existing steel beam bridge that was built in 1929 and is currently listed in poor condition.
The new two-span, concrete bridge structure is being constructed downstream of the existing crossing on a new alignment extending from the intersection of U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) and Sugars Bridge Road to the intersection of U.S. 322 (Downingtown Pike) and Skelp Level Road. Operations began in November 2018 and the entire project is expected to be completed in spring of 2020.
Allan Myers, LP, of Worcester, PA is the general contractor on the $5,859,555 project which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.
