Stormwater & Route 202 Flooding
Recent significant rainfall events have caused flooding issues on north and southbound 202 between Smithbridge Road and Naamans Creek/Beaver Valley Roads. As Route 202 is a PENNDOT roadway, the Township and Rep. Barrar have been actively working with PENNDOT staff to resolve the ongoing issue, including lending staff and equipment and meeting with local property owners. Initially, PENNDOT was able to clear several storm sewer pipes and inlets of debris and blockages, however, this then led to the identification of an additional storm sewer blockage downstream. PENNDOT is currently coordinating the repair of this issue.
While we appreciate everyone’s patience on this issue, any questions or concerns should be directed to PENNDOT, and any emergencies to 9-1-1. The Township, Rep. Barrar and the Pennsylvania State Police will stay informed on the issue and provide further updates as appropriate.
To submit a concern to PENNDOT, visit their Customer Care Center web page: https://customercare.penndot.gov/
New Traffic Pattern Begins October 25 on U.S. 1 at U.S. 322
Traffic Alert from PennDot: Motorists on U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) and U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) in Concord Township, Delaware County will encounter lane closures on Thursday, October 25, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM as crews set up a new traffic pattern at the intersection of the two highways.
The new pattern will eliminate the right turn merge lane on northbound U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) at the intersection, requiring motorists heading to eastbound U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) to turn right from the right travel lane at the traffic signal. The new pattern will be in place through summer 2020 as the intersection is reconstructed.
This new traffic pattern is part of the U.S. 322 (Conchester Highway) Improvement Project. For more project information and to sign up for email alerts about the project, go to us322conchester.com.

Adaptive Traffic Signal System:
The InSync Adaptive Traffic Signal System, developed by Rhythm Engineering, utilizes video detection cameras for each intersection approach to determine how many vehicles are waiting in each lane, and how long they have been there. The system uses this information to decide which approach should receive a green light, and how long the green phase should last.
In Concord Township, the InSync system has been installed on US Route 1 and US Route 202:
- On US Route 1, the InSync system is operational from intersection with US Route 202 to intersection with US Route 322;
- On US Route 322, the InSync system is operation from Oakland Road to Johnson Farm Lane.
