King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced the start of construction on a project to restore and reconstruct 11 stormwater management sites in Bucks, Chester and Delaware Counties.
The purpose of the project is to maintain and repair the sites, which were constructed as part of previous roadway projects. Maintenance and repair of the stormwater and wetland sites will help mitigate the risk of future flooding and ensure compliance with the environmental permits that were issued at the time of the original projects.
On Monday, September 21, through Friday, October 9, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, weekday shoulder closures are scheduled on Swedesford Road just before the ramp to U.S. 202 North in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, for basin remediation.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signing, and relevant training.
C. Abbonizio Contractors Inc., is the general contractor on the $1,338,607 project which is financed with 100 percent state funds. The entire project is expected to finish in fall 2022.
