Print

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) began construction on Monday, June 22, to make structural repairs to the pedestrian sidewalk on the North Valley Road bridge over Amtrak and SEPTA rail lines in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County.

Crews will work Monday, June 22, through Friday, June 26, from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM to repair the underside of the sidewalk. This operation will not affect vehicular or pedestrian travel on the bridge. 

In July, North Valley Road will be closed to vehicular traffic between East Central Avenue and U.S. 30 (Lancaster Avenue) from 9:00 AM Friday, July 10 to 5:00 PM Sunday, July 12, for the repair and resurfacing of the sidewalk on the bridge. Motorists will be detoured over East Central Avenue, Route 252, and U.S. 30 (Lancaster Avenue). North Valley Road will remain open to pedestrians. Access to the Paoli Train Station will be maintained during this weekend operation. Motorists will have access to parking lots on both sides of the station. 

The work schedules are dependent on the weather.
