EAST WHITELAND — A $63.3 million project to expand 2.6 miles of U.S. Route 202 to six lanes to improve travel and reduce congestion will begin Monday night, April 1.

The project is the final one in the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s program to expand 6.2 miles of Route 202 to six lanes from just south of the Chesterbrook Interchange in Tredyffrin Township to the Route 30 Interchange.

“The start of this second Main Line contract is another positive step forward in our plan to transform Route 202 into a modern highway capable of moving travelers smoothly and safely through the Great Valley area of Chester County,” PennDOT District Executive Lester C. Toaso said.

Allan A. Myers LP, of Worcester, was chosen as the project contractor and will reconstruct and widen Route 202 from four lanes to six between the Route 401 and Route 30 interchanges. This project is scheduled to finish in May 2016.
