Road renewal for impact travel in Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties

SOUTHEAST PENNSYLVANIA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced a series of renewal operations that will take place in Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties, signaling potential travel disruptions for motorists in the coming days.

In Delaware County, a mix of night and day activities will impact several major routes. Flagged lane closures are planned on Concord Road between Bethel Road and US 1 (Baltimore Pike) in several townships from Sunday, April 21 through Thursday, April 25 for paving work. At the same time, daytime lane closures due to utility adjustments will continue on the same route until Friday, April 26.

Similar work is planned for Route 352 (Edgmont Avenue) and Dutton Mill Road, where milling, paving and utility adjustments will necessitate lane closures during similar hours and days. In addition, Route 252 (Newtown Street Road) will have lane closures for crack sealing work through early May, further contributing to potential travel delays.

Montgomery County will also experience disruptions, with Upper Ridge Road being milled and paved from April 21 through 26, impacting traffic flow between Route 29 (Gravel Pike) and Route 63 (Main Street).

Philadelphia roads will not be spared, with significant milling and paving work planned on Bala Avenue, Barren Hill Road, Joshua Road/Lafayette Avenue and Stenton Avenue/Penllyn Blue Bell Pike throughout the week. These operations, scheduled for both day and night, will likely impact travel in Lower Merion Township, Whitemarsh Township and Whitpain Township.

Motorists passing through these areas are advised to allow extra time for their journey to allow for expected delays. PennDOT emphasizes that the timing of these activities is dependent on favorable weather conditions, indicating that schedules may shift in response to meteorological developments.
