[ARCHIVED] PennDOT to Begin Repaving Work on Bryn Mawr Avenue and Goshen Road

PennDOT Symbol

This morning, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced the following repaving work on State Roads within Newtown Township:

  • Sunday, October 9, through Thursday, October 13, 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a lane closure is scheduled on Bryn Mawr Avenue between Route 3 (West Chester Pike) and the Bryn Mawr Avenue bridge over Darby Creek in Newtown and Radnor townships for milling;
  • Tuesday, October 11, through Thursday, October 13, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a lane closure is scheduled on Goshen Road between Route 252 (Newtown Street Road) and Darby Paoli Road in Newtown and Radnor townships for milling;

Upon discussion with PennDOT's contractor, it was shared that milling operations on Bryn Mawr Avenue may actually begin as early as this evening (Friday October 7th).  It was also shared that milling will take place first, but that the paving itself will be delayed several days while base repairs are identified and performed.  We are also aware that PennDOT intends to replace two stormwater pipes underneath Bryn Mawr Avenue - however, it is not known if PennDOT will be performing this pipe replacement prior to the repaving work or if they intend to do it afterwards.

St Davids Road is also on the PennDOT schedule to be repaved, but a date for this work has not yet been announced.


PennDOT includes the following information with their informational bulletins:

  • Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because slowdowns may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
  • Under these resurfacing projects, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surfaces and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
  • Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting www.511PA.com or downloading the 511PA mobile application. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
