A $10 million PennDOT project will address safety and accessibility issues on about nine miles of Lincoln Highway in Chester and Lancaster Counties, writes Logan Perrone for FOX43

The part of Route 30 that will be worked on is between Routes 772 and 896. Motorists often speed on Route 30, which makes for dangerous conditions. 

“People fly down Route 30,” said Paradise Township resident Lina Redcay. “You see the trucks and how they fly by here.” 

This part of Route 30 saw 415 crashes from 2017 to 2021, nine of which were fatal. According to Paradise Township manager David Thompson, growth in the surrounding region has worsened the issue. 

“I’ve seen development,” said Thompson. “We’re getting pinched from the Chester County development and the Lancaster city development.” 

The project will make improvements on a total of seven intersections. New traffic signals and signage, as well as pavement markings and resurfacing are among the planned upgrades. Construction is expected to start later this year. The estimated completion date is March 2026. 

“We’re going to see more traffic,” said Thompson. “We got to make sure people stay safe.”
