PennDOT I-476 [Blue Route] Improvement Project - Basins

Post Date:04/01/2024 11:38 AM

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is underway on a $63.7 million project to resurface, repair and improve nearly 17 miles of Interstate 476, the associated on-and-off ramps and bridges from Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) in West Conshohocken Borough, Montgomery County, to Interstate 95 in Ridley Township, Delaware County.

The work being done within Radnor Township is a part of this multi-year, multi-faceted I-476/IMP contract. PennDOT contractor, H&K Group, will be working along the entire I-476 corridor from I-76 to I-95. Their work includes resurfacing/paving, structural improvements, drainage improvements, and other maintenance issues that the I-476 corridor and its access ramps need to continue to function properly. All this work is being overseen by PennDOT and its consultant partners. 

Over the next two years, you will see various items of work being done around the Township in conjunction with these improvement efforts. This includes the reconstruction of several basins located within Radnor Township which service the I-476 corridor. All basins within the Township associated with I-476 will be reconstructed in some shape or form. The most visible basins within the Township are along Lancaster Ave (US-30) at the I-476 Interchange [shown]. In the past few months, you may have noticed that PennDOT and its contractor have begun the clearing of invasive trees and brush from these basin areas.

In the next several weeks to months, you will notice the following work: grading, pipe work, erosion control, and storm water control measures, being conducted in these areas. This work will all be conducted/constructed with the goal of having proper functioning basins to help alleviate any ongoing run-off and drainage issues that are currently experienced on I-476 and the local roadways. PennDOT and their contractor will conduct this work in a manner, to minimally impact the residents of the Township and the public, while making these upgrades.
