King of Prussia, PA – The ramp from the eastbound U.S. 30/Exton Bypass to northbound U.S. 202 in East Whiteland and West Whiteland townships, Chester County, will be closed Monday, June 10, through Friday, June 14, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, and until 8:00 AM Saturday, June 15, for bridge painting, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
U.S. 30/Exton Bypass motorists heading to northbound U.S. 202 will exit at Business U.S. 30, turn right onto Business U.S. 30 and right onto the ramp to northbound U.S. 202.
Motorists are advised that backups may occur at times approaching the work zone. All schedule activities are weather permitting.
PennDOT is currently in the final stages of rehabilitating and redecking the southbound U.S. 202 bridge over Amtrak. Rehabilitation of the northbound bridge finished in mid-2018.
The work is part of PennDOT’s $26.4 million project to rehabilitate the northbound and southbound U.S. 202 bridges over Amtrak and the U.S. 30/Exton Bypass ramp and replace the concrete pavement on the ramps to and from U.S. 202 and U.S. 30/Exton Bypass. The entire project is expected to be completed this fall.
