Other Township Road Work:
- On Wednesday, June 29, The Brandolini Companies will begin the modifications to Spring Valley Road they are responsible for as a condition of approval of the Redstone Apartments project. Briefly, Spring Valley Road will be CLOSED to eastbound traffic at Fellowship Drive and a concrete ‘pork chop’ installed at its intersection with Route 322 to only permit vehicles travelling southbound on 322 to turn onto Spring Valley Road.
- This will make Spring Valley Road one way, westbound, between 322 and Fellowship Drive. The intention being to reduce cut through traffic from major highways on local township roads and force vehicles to utilize the safer signalized intersection of Fellowship Drive and 322. We anticipate portions of Spring Valley Road will be closed, with detours through Fellowship Drive, through the duration of the approximately three (3) week project. Please obey all traffic control personnel.
PennDOT roadwork continues in Concord Township.

Adaptive Traffic Signal System:
In late October 2015, the InSync Adaptive Traffic Signal System is scheduled to be operational on Route 202. This system, originally installed by Concord Township on Baltimore Pike in 2014, is being extended down Route 202 from Oakland Road to Johnson Farm Lane via a grant from PennDOT’s Automatic Red Light Enforcement (ARLE) program. The grant was applied for on behalf of Concord and Chadds Ford Townships and the project, like the Baltimore Pike project, is being completed at no cost to the Townships. Note that the intersections of Route 202 & Hillman and Route 202 & Applied Card will be upgraded at the same time by the developer of the Brandywine Mills project.
The InSync 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.
The InSync system has significantly reduced waiting times on Route 1 and we are looking forward to the extension down Route 202. We appreciate everyone’s patience as this system becomes operational; please be aware of new traffic patterns. Please feel free to send any comments, observations or complaints to firstname.lastname@example.org.
