Today, PennDOT announced the UPDATED travel restrictions on Rt 1 given the above subject project. This announcement is on the Township’s website.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
- Sunday, July 16, through Friday, July 21, from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a moving lane closure is scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 (Kennett-Oxford Bypass) between the New Garden Township line and the U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) Interchange in Kennett, East Marlborough, and New Garden townships for line striping

Under this project, PennDOT’s contractor will mill and overlay U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike); construct a third travel lane on certain sections of U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) in each direction and use existing shoulders and right turn lanes to create a third lane for the rest of the corridor; build sidewalks along the north side of U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) from Schoolhouse Road to the Longwood Village Shopping Center entrance; eliminate the left turn movement from Orchard Avenue onto U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike); install two new Dynamic Message Signs; and upgrade five signalized intersections within the corridor.
