King of Prussia, PA – Overnight lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 41 (Gap Newport Pike) from the Delaware state line to the U.S. 1 Interchange in Avondale Borough and New Garden and London Grove townships, on Sunday, June 24, through Thursday, June 28, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for paving operations as part of an improvement project to repair and resurface 26 miles of state highway in Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zone because slowdowns may occur. The contractor’s schedule is dependent on the weather.
State highways completed under this resurfacing project include:
• Route 472 (Lewisville Road/Hickory Hill Road) between Route 841 (Chesterville Road) and Freese Road in Elk and East Nottingham townships;
• Street Road between the Octoraro Creek Bridge and Homeville Road in Upper Oxford Township;

Additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:

• Main Street/Green Street/Swan Road/Upper Valley Road from Route 372 (Main Street) to the Atglen Borough line.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
