PennDOT Completes Widening and Improvement Project on Route 252 in Delaware County

After years of complaints about the conditions that existed at the intersection of 252 and Providence Road, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that it has completed physical work on the $5 million project to improve traffic flow on Route 252 (Providence Road) between Palmers Mill Road and Kirk Lane in Upper Providence Township, Delaware County. The $5,087,279 project was funded with 100% State funds; the direct result of the passage of legislation included in ACT 89 passed by the Pa. General Assembly and signed into law in late 2014.

“The improvements and upgrades to Route 252 (Providence Road) will make travel safer and help ease congestion on a section of highway that carries more than 25,000 vehicles a day,” PennDOT District Executive Kenneth M. McClain said.

Crews worked 18 months to improve Route 252 (Providence Road) by widening the roadway to five lanes at the interchange with U.S. 1; upgrading ramps at the U.S. 1 interchange; widening the intersections at Palmers Mill Road, Rose Tree Road and Kirk Lane; installing new traffic signals and sidewalks; and rehabilitating the Route 252 (Providence Road) bridge over U.S. 1.
