PennDOT to help Newtown with two road projects

    From Goshen Road to the Gradyville Road bridge, Newtown, Delaware County, will get help from PennDOT to make its roads safer.

    The safety of both roads has come up before, and the Delco Times now has details on PennDOT’s improvement plans.

    Goshen Road, the site of a fatal crash in April, will get more traffic signals, intersection alert signs and 30mph signs. The bridge, closed earlier this month when PennDOT deemed it unsafe, is now the focus of a year-long replacement project. PennDOT will find 80 percent of it.


    In other PennDOT news, Chestnut Street between 30th Street and Schuylkill Avenue in Philadelphia will experience daylong closures for the next month. Chestnut will be reduced from four lanes to two while crews reconstruct the street.
