Milling and Paving Work on West Chester Pike

PennDOT Symbol

The milling and paving of West Chester Pike (in the location of the PennDOT widening project) is scheduled to begin on Sunday night, April 18, 2021.  PennDOT has authorized overnight work to take place between 8:00pm and 6:00am for approximately 2 weeks.

The location of the milling and paving is between Ellis Avenue and the Newtown Square Shopping Center (ACME) driveway.  This will include line painting work, which will identify the new lane configurations in the area.  Widening work, storm sewer work and traffic signal modifications have already taken place, and once the new lane configurations are completed and signal programming changes will go into effect.  PennDOT's intention in this project is to help alleviate the traffic congestion often experienced at the intersection of West Chester Pike (Route 3) and Newtown Street Road (Route 252).

Please be aware that this milling and paving work will be taking place overnight.  When travelling through the work zone be extremely careful, and follow any instructions given by those working there.

Following the completion of the road improvements, the West Chester Pike medians will be replanted.
