East Whiteland Township Supervisor Sue Drummond remembers when Route 202 in Chester County barely merited the designation highway , though it certainly was a magnet for traffic. But after two decades of planning, construction, lane movement, and often-maddening commutes for motorists in one of the region's fastest growing population and development corridors, what was once a two-lane road on Friday officially became a six-lane highway from the Schuylkill Expressway to the Route 30 interchange.

The project dates to the late 1990s, but for tens of thousands of motorists who have contended with the shifting lanes, bulky vehicles, construction crews, and sometimes bewildering lane shifts on Route 202, it might have seemed eternal. "People feel like this has been going on forever," said John Ewald, manager of corporate and community relations for the Transportation Management Association of Chester County. "There is that sense of endless construction. " But the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Thursday that the widening of Route 202, one of the region's busiest and fastest-growing corridors, is coming to an end. PennDot said all six lanes of the expressway on the widened 2.5-mile section in East Whiteland Township would be open by the end of next week.

South Jersey drivers are in for additional traffic woes, as a months-long construction project begins this week on Route 70 - a stretch of highway that officials call one of the worst-paved in the state. Work will start in both directions on a 7.7-mile stretch of Route 70, from Browning Road in Pennsauken, through Cherry Hill and into Evesham Township, Department of Transportation officials said. The $9 million project will repave that section of the road before a "more extensive" $50 million project to reconstruct the road starts in 2019, said Kevin Israel, a Department of Transportation spokesman.
