PennDOT to Begin Project to Replace Two Green Valley Road Culverts in Newlin Township

Green Valley Road to close beginning December 14

 

King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction will begin next week on a project to replace the culverts that carry Green Valley Road over the west branch of Brandywine Creek and over Green Valley Creek in Newlin Township, Chester County.

 

The two structures include:

 

  • Green Valley Road over the west branch of Brandywine Creek. Built in 1937 and reconstructed in 1986, the structure is 13 feet long, 19 feet wide; and
  • Green Valley Road over Green Valley Creek. Built in 1935, the structure is 10 feet long and 13 feet wide.

 

Due to the nature of construction, Green Valley Road will be closed and detoured 24/7 between Powell Road and Brandywine Creek Road beginning Monday, December 14, through the completion of the project, which is scheduled for mid-March 2021.

 

During the closure, Green Valley Road motorists will be directed to use Brandywine Creek Road and Powell Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

 

Construction will begin with the replacement of the culvert over the west branch of Brandywine Creek. Upon its completion, construction will begin on the structure over Green Valley Creek.

 

Both structures will be replaced with new box culverts. The culverts currently carry an average of 167 vehicles a day.
