Nighttime Lane Restrictions Scheduled Next Week on Route 452 in Delaware County for Resurfacing

Released May 26, 2017

King of Prussia, PA – Nighttime travel restrictions are scheduled next week on two sections of Route 452 (Market Street/Pennell Road) for resurfacing operations as part of a $1.5 million project to repair and resurface five miles of state highway in Delaware County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work schedule is:

  • Tuesday, May 30, through Friday, June 2, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 452 (Market Street) between 10th Street and Meetinghouse Road in Marcus Hook Borough, Lower Chichester and Upper Chichester townships, for milling, paving and base repair; and
  • Tuesday, May 30, through Friday, June 2, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 452 (Pennell Road) between Jessica Way and Route 352 (Middletown Road) in Middletown and Aston townships, for milling, paving and base repair.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through these work zones because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.

Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill the existing roadway surface and repave the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

Allan A. Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $1,577,777 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s Transportation Plan.

For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year, those made possible by or accelerated by Act 89, or those on the department’s Four and Twelve Year Plans, visit

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 825 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
