Construction To Partially Close Major TE Road

Water main construction will shut down a section of a Tredyffrin Easttown road just as commuters head back to work next week.

Aqua Pennsylvania will begin installing a new water main on Berwyn Paoli Road on Wednesday morning (Jan 2).

This stretch of road is just west of Lancaster Ave, (a few hundred feet south of the Goodwill Store and Play it Again Sports) and it is literally on the borderline between Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships.

The shutdown of the road will come just as many people are returning to the daily commute following holiday vacations.

According to a letter sent to customers in the region, the stretch of road is on Berwyn Paoli Rd. from a point 180 feet east of Country Rd. to a point 270 feet west of Country Rd.

     The work hours for the project will be 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily. The roadway will be closed in the area of construction. Access will be provided for essential services including emergency vehicles, school buses, and mail and trash service. Residents will have access to their properties. Point of access may change based on crew location.

     The project is expect to run through February and the road will then be fully repaved when weather permits in the early spring.

The full letter to customers and a map of the affected area are attached to this article as pdf filed.

The description is a little misleading because Berwyn Paoli Rd. is west of Play it Again Sports and Goodwill. The intersection of BP Road and Lancaster Ave is on the south side of Lancaster more or less opposite the restaurant Nectar. It seems that the construction might impact access in and out of the Upper Main Line Y. What is being done to ensure that members can get in and out of the facility?

Though initially the Y was told the road was to be shut down, we were informed yesterday that it will now remain open during construction.

Y clients are already blowing through the stop sign at Glenn Ave & Berwyn Paoli Rd to get to their precious workouts. They won't have any problems getting there during the construction
