UPDATE: Closure hours are now from 8 am to 4 pm.
The project will likely extend into September of 2017. In an attempt to ensure that this project does not continue later into the fall, PennDOT has authorized AQUA’s contractor to extend its working day for this project from 8 am until 4 pm. This change means that AQUA’s contractor may close the road between 8 am and 4 pm instead of the originally scheduled time frame of 9 am to 3 pm.
Aqua Pennsylvania is planning to close Sugartown Road weekdays between Route 252 (Darby Paoli Road) and Waterloo Avenue in Easttown Township, Chester County, on Wednesday, July 5, through Thursday, October 5, from 9:00 AM, to 3:00 PM, for water main installation, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced. During this weekday operation, Sugartown Road motorists will be detoured over Sugartown Road, Route 252 (Darby Paoli Road), U.S. Business 30 (Lancaster Avenue) and Waterloo Avenue. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because slowdowns will occur during construction. Aqua Pennsylvania will complete this project under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.< A list of weekly road restrictions and PennDOT maintenance operations in the five-county Philadelphia region is available by visiting the District 6 Traffic Bulletin at www.penndot.gov/District6.
