Brandywine Creek Road to be Restricted to Eastbound Traffic Only in Newlin Township, Chester County

 

King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that Brandywine Creek Road will be closed between Green Valley Road and Powell Road in Newlin Township, Chester County, tomorrow March 2, from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for the installation of concrete barrier to close this section of the road to westbound traffic.

 

During the operation, Brandywine Creek Road through traffic will be detoured over Strasburg Road and Mortonville Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

 

Once the concrete barrier is installed, Brandywine Creek Road will remain closed indefinitely to westbound traffic, which will continue to follow the posted detour. Brandywine Creek Road will remain open to eastbound travelers.

 

The one-way pattern is being implemented due to the instability of the slope along Brandywine Creek Road. PennDOT is preliminarily designing a project to stabilize the slope.

 

Motorists should reduce their speeds whenever traveling through the work zone.
