[ARCHIVED] PennDOT's Resurfacing Operations in Upper Moreland

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that several state highways are restricted next week in Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties for resurfacing operations, as a part of several projects to repair and resurface more than 200 miles of state highway across the five-county Philadelphia region.

The work schedules and locations in Upper Moreland Township are:

Sunday, August 8, through Friday, August 13, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, a lane closure is scheduled on Fitzwatertown Road between Route 263 (York Road) and Route 152 (Limekiln Pike) in Upper Moreland, Abington, and Upper Dublin townships for casting adjustment, milling, and paving operations.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent. Under these improvement projects, 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.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
