Valley Forge to Downingtown Turnpike Exchange Road Widening

Construction beginning in spring 2023 will widen and reconstruct four-plus miles of the Pennsylvania Turnpike from the Downingtown Interchange (Milepost 312) east to the Valley Hill Road bridge (Milepost 316) in Upper Uwchlan, Uwchlan, West Pikeland, and Charlestown Townships in Chester County.

The existing four-lane roadway — with two 12-foot-wide travel lanes in each direction, a 10-foot median, and 12-foot-wide outside shoulders — will be converted into a six-lane facility with three 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, a 26-foot median, and 12-foot-wide outside shoulders

ROAD REPAIR UPDATES IN WEST PIKELAND TOWNSHIP

PennDOT anticipates the Art School Road over Pickering Creek Bridge Replacements project to begin in October 2024.  Prior to resurfacing the road between the two bridges, county maintenance forces will monitor, maintain, and make repairs as needed to Art School Road, including the road between the two bridges scheduled to be resurfaced with the project. 

Art School Road is scheduled for shoulder cutting and side dozing in 2024.  The department’s Chester County Maintenance Unit will continue the sectional activities on the entirety of Art School Road; however, once the bridge replacement project is underway, certain sectional maintenance activities may not be required for the newly resurfaced section of Art School.  The schedule of sectional maintenance for Art School Road is:

 

 

  • 2024: Shoulder cut and side doze

  • 2025: complete pipe inspections, flush pipes and tail ditch

  • 2026: pipe replacement where necessary, continue ditch/tail ditch

  • 2027: base repair, patching, crack sealing (in prep for sealcoat)

  • 2028: sealcoat application
