Motorists will encounter lane restrictions in both directions on Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) between Black Horse Road and Route 23 on Monday, February 26, through Friday, March 30, for clearing operations related to the project to improve traffic flow and safety along a 6.3 mile section of Route 100. Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zone because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.
Over the next several months, crews will work to improve the stretch of Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) between Garrison Drive and Route 23 (Ridge Road). The scope of work includes resurfacing the corridor with an open-graded surface treatment (NovaChip) to increase friction and reduce hydroplaning; constructing two shoulder-widening pull-offs; and installing pavement markings, rumble strips, and guiderail. In addition, PennDOT’s contractor will improve the intersection of Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) and Route 23 (Ridge Road) by constructing a dedicated northbound left-turn lane as well as updating traffic signals.
Allan A. Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $5.6 million project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.
