Delaware CountyEdit

Northbound US 202/westbound US 322 past US 1 in Painters Crossing

US 202 enters Pennsylvania from Delaware in Bethel Township, Delaware County, heading north on four-lane divided Wilmington-West Chester Pike. The road soon crosses into Concord Township and continues past commercial development, coming to an intersection with the western terminus of PA 491 and Beaver Valley Road in the community of Johnsons Corners. Past this intersection, the route splits into a one-way pair carrying two lanes in each direction and heads northwest past businesses and some homes, coming to a junction with Smithbridge Road in the community of Elam. Both directions of US 202 rejoin and the route heads north as a four-lane divided highway into Chadds Ford Township, where it becomes a five-lane road with a center left-turn lane and runs through more commercial areas. The road passes through the community of Brandywine Summit and becomes a four-lane divided highway again, curving northwest and running along the border between Chadds Ford Township to the southwest and Concord Township to the northeast. The route comes to an intersection with US 1/US 322 (Baltimore Pike) in the community of Painters Crossing, where US 322 turns northwest for a concurrency with US 202. US 202/US 322 heads northwest along a four-lane divided highway between businesses to the southwest and an office park to the northeast. The road enters a mix of fields and commercial development and fully enters Chadds Ford Township, running a short distance to the west of the border with Thornbury Township. The two routes pass to the west of a residential development before reaching an intersection with Dilworthtown Road.[3][4]

Upon crossing Dilworthtown Road, US 202/US 322 enters Birmingham Township in Chester County and continues northwest along four-lane divided Wilmington Pike past businesses a short distance west of the Thornbury Township border. The road crosses into Thornbury Township and passes between suburban residential neighborhoods. The two routes head into business areas and reach an intersection with PA 926 in the community of Darlington Corner. Upon crossing PA 926, US 202/US 322 heads into Westtown Township and runs between farmland to the west and wooded residential neighborhoods to the east. The road runs past more homes and commercial establishments, coming to a jughandle-controlled intersection at Skiles Boulevard. Past here, two routes head north-northwest through wooded areas of homes and businesses.[3][5]

US 202/US 322 comes to a trumpet interchange with the south end of the West Chester Bypass, which bypasses the borough of West Chester to the east. At this point, US 202/US 322 head northeast onto the four-lane divided West Chester Bypass into West Goshen Township, while US 322 Bus. continues north on South High Street into West Chester. US 202/US 322 follow the bypass past industrial parks to an at-grade intersection with South Matlack Street, at which point the bypass becomes a four-lane freeway. The highway curves north and passes over the West Chester Railroad. Past this, the freeway comes to a diamond interchange at Westtown Road.

US 202 comes to an interchange serving PA 252 and North Valley Forge Road, with PA 252 heading north away from US 202. The freeway is paralleled with Swedesford Road as a frontage road on each side and the Chester Valley Trail to the south, coming to a northbound exit providing access to West Valley Road. Following this, the frontage roads end and the route runs east-northeast past office parks with the trail to the south. The freeway comes to a northbound exit providing access to eastbound I-76 (Schuylkill Expressway) and Devon Park Drive and a southbound entrance from Swedesford Road. A short distance later, US 202 comes to an interchange with the eastern terminus of the US 422 freeway. This interchange also has access from southbound US 202 to Swedesford Road via the ramp to US 422 westbound as well as from Devon Park Drive to northbound US 202 via the ramp from US 422 eastbound.[3][5]

Montgomery CountyEdit

US 202 southbound approaching Gulph Road in King of Prussia

Past the US 422 interchange, the US 202 freeway enters Upper Merion Township in Montgomery County and continues past office parks and businesses south of the King of Prussia Town Center, with the southbound ramp to westbound US 422 and Swedesford Road parallel to the southbound lanes. The freeway comes to a modified cloverleaf interchange with I-76 (Schuylkill Expressway). This interchange provides all connections between I-76 and US 202 except between northbound US 202 and eastbound I-76, which is provided by a separate ramp further south. In addition, the ramp from southbound US 202 to westbound US 422 and Swedesford Road splits within this interchange, which also acts as a collector/distributor road for the I-76 interchange. I-76 heads west to provide access to the Pennsylvania Turnpike at the western terminus of I-276 at the Valley Forge interchange. Following this interchange, the US 202 freeway ends and the route becomes six-lane divided at-grade West Dekalb Pike, heading into King of Prussia. The route heads into business areas and intersects Gulph Road, at which point it passes southeast of the King of Prussia mall. Following the Allendale Road intersection, the divided road narrows to four lanes and runs between commercial establishments to the northwest and residential neighborhoods to the southeast, coming to a bridge over the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-276). US 202 continues southeast of a neighborhood and runs past more businesses, reaching an intersection with Henderson Road. From here, the route becomes East Dekalb Pike and runs through more commercial areas, crossing an abandoned railroad line and bending to the north-northeast.[3][6]

Both directions of US 202 cross the Schuylkill River into the borough of Norristown. Northbound US 202 crosses the river on the Dekalb Veterans Memorial Bridge before it passes under SEPTA's Manayunk/Norristown Line and the Schuylkill River Trail east of the Norristown Transportation Center. Southbound US 202 passes under the Schuylkill River Trail before it heads onto the William F. Dannehower Memorial Bridge. The route passes over the Manayunk/Norristown Line before heading over the Schuylkill River. The route heads into West Norriton Township and passes over a Norfolk Southern line and wooded Barbadoes Island before heading over more of the river and into Bridgeport. From here, northbound US 202 crosses Lafayette Street and becomes one-way with two lanes of northbound traffic on Dekalb Street, passing businesses in the downtown area of Norristown, where it crosses Main Street. Southbound US 202 runs northeast along four-lane divided Markley Street through commercial areas, with the Manayunk/Norristown Line parallel to the west. Markley Street passes to the east of the Main Street station at Main Street, crosses under Airy Street, and heads to the east of the terminus of the Manayunk/Norristown Line at the Elm Street station at Elm Street. Markley Street narrows to a two-lane undivided road between Marshall and Elm streets. From here, US 202 continues northeast through urban residential areas with some businesses, following one-way, two-lane Dekalb Street northbound and two-way, two-lane Markley Street southbound. At the northern border of Norristown, southbound US 202 rejoins northbound US 202 at Dekalb Street by following two-lane undivided Johnson Highway northwest between Dekalb Street and Markley Street.[3][6]

US 202 northbound past PA 73 in Blue Bell

From here, US 202 heads northeast into East Norriton Township along two-lane undivided Dekalb Pike, passing through suburban residential neighborhoods and running through the community of Grand View Heights. The road heads into business areas and passes to the southeast of Suburban Community Hospital, widening into a four-lane divided highway and coming to an intersection with Germantown Pike. The route becomes a three-lane road with a center left-turn lane, narrowing to two lanes and running through wooded residential neighborhoods.

US 202 parkway northbound in Montgomery Township

US 202 becomes a four-lane divided highway and comes to an intersection with the southern terminus of US 202 Bus., where that route heads north on Dekalb Pike. Here, US 202 becomes a four-lane undivided expressway-grade parkway dedicated as the George A. Penglase Memorial Parkway.[3][6] The US 202 parkway features landscaping and split-rail fences and is designated as a Pennsylvania Scenic Byway known as the U.S. Route 202 Parkway Scenic Byway; as such, billboards are banned.[7][8] Soon after beginning, the parkway comes to an intersection with PA 63. Upon crossing PA 63, the US 202 parkway enters Montgomery Township in the North Penn Valley region and becomes paralleled by a multi-use trail called the US 202 Parkway Trail to the east of the road. The road winds north near residential and commercial development, intersecting Knapp Road. The route curves to the northeast and comes to an interchange with PA 309 (Bethlehem Pike), at which point the US 202 Parkway Trail crosses to the west side of the road. Following this, US 202 continues near development, crossing the trail again at the Costco Drive/Terrace Way intersection. The parkway reaches a junction with PA 463, at which point it narrows to two lanes. The road winds northeast through wooded areas with nearby residential neighborhoods, coming to an intersection with County Line Road.[3][6]

Bucks CountyEdit

Upon crossing County Line Road, the US 202 parkway leaves the North Penn Valley region and enters Warrington Township in Bucks County, where it and the US 202 Parkway Trail wind north through a mix of fields and woods. The road curves northeast and comes to an intersection with PA 152. The route heads northeast near residential neighborhoods and some woodland, reaching a junction with Bristol Road. At this point, the trail heads to the west side of US 202 and the parkway continues into Doylestown Township, curving east and coming to a bridge over the Neshaminy Creek. The road heads through a mix of fields and woods and turns to the northeast. The route curves back to the east and runs through more woodland, coming to an intersection with Lower State Road. Here, the US 202 Parkway Trail crosses to the south. US 202 continues along the parkway past residential subdivisions and curves northeast. The road passes over New Britain Road, at which point the US 202 Parkway Trail ends.[3][9]

US 202 freeway northbound past Main Street in Doylestown

The parkway ends and US 202 transitions into a four-lane freeway, coming to a cloverleaf interchange with the PA 611 freeway. The US 202 freeway bypasses the borough of Doylestown to the south and runs through wooded areas, coming to a diamond interchange with South Main Street. Here, the freeway passes through a small section of Doylestown before heading back into Doylestown Township and running through woodland with nearby residential development. The freeway section of US 202 ends at an intersection with East State Street.[3][9]

At this point, US 202 becomes two-lane undivided Doylestown-Buckingham Pike, crossing PA 313 and entering Buckingham Township. The road heads east-northeast through a mix of wooded residential neighborhoods and some fields, bending to the east. The route continues through wooded areas with housing developments, curving to the northeast. US 202 heads east into the community of Buckingham, where it becomes a divided highway and comes to an intersection with PA 413. The road passes more development and becomes undivided, reaching a junction with PA 263. At this point, US 202 turns northeast for a concurrency with PA 263 on two-lane undivided York Road, heading through fields and woodland with some development and passing through the community of Holicong.[3][9]

US 202 northbound on Lower York Road, approaching New Hope

Upon reaching the unincorporated village of Lahaska, the two routes split, with US 202 heading east-northeast onto Lower York Road. The road passes between Peddler's Village to the north and the Penn's Purchase Factory Stores to the south, crossing Street Road into Solebury Township. The route passes residential subdivisions before it heads east through a mix of fields and woods with some residential and commercial development. US 202 crosses Aquetong Road in the community of Aquetong and bends east-northeast through wooded areas. The road heads between residential areas to the north and businesses to the south, gaining a second southbound lane and then a median before coming to an intersection with the southern terminus of PA 179, which heads east into the borough of New Hope. Here, the route turns northeast and becomes a two-lane undivided road, passing near more development as it heads through the northwest corner of New Hope. US 202 comes to a ramp to PA 32 and curves north into Solebury Township, running through fields. The route turns east and becomes a four-lane freeway, coming to an interchange with PA 32 that has a southbound exit and northbound entrance. US 202 has a southbound toll plaza and passes over the Delaware Canal and the Delaware River on the New Hope-Lambertville Toll Bridge, where it leaves Pennsylvania for New Jersey.[3][9]


US 202 southbound past Gulph Road (then PA 23) in King of Prussia in 1960, with the King of Prussia Inn in the median of the road. The inn has since been relocated.

The Dekalb Pike portion of US 202 was originally chartered as a turnpike called the Norristown, Bridgeport, and King of Prussia Turnpike in 1848. Construction on the turnpike began in 1853 and shares for the turnpike company sold for $10 each. Investors of the turnpike did not receive a dividend until 1885; shortly after that, the Dekalb Pike was turned over to public control and the tolls removed.[10]

Before the creation of the U.S. highway system, the route had been part of Pennsylvania Route 29 between the Delaware border and West Chester and Pennsylvania Route 52 between West Chester and the New Jersey border.[11] U.S. Route 122 was created in 1926, connecting US 22 at Whitehouse, New Jersey with Wilmington, Delaware. It became part of US 202 in 1934.[1]

U.S. Route 202 followed a different alignment in Chester County before the limited access alignment was built. The former alignment had US 202 separating from US 322 and what was then the West Chester By-Pass onto Paoli Pike, then later overlapping US 30 in Paoli and then turning north on what later became Pennsylvania Route 252.[citation needed]

In the early 1960s, a four-lane expressway was proposed that would follow the US 202 corridor. The "Piedmont Expressway" was to be 59 miles (95 km) long, and would cost approximately $146 million. It was to serve as an outer beltway around the Philadelphia area, similar to the Capital Beltway that encircles Washington, D.C.[citation needed]

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation divided the US 202 Expressway into the following eight sections:[citation needed]

US 202 parkway northbound past PA 63 in Montgomery Township

The US 202 parkway was proposed as an 8.5-mile (13.7 km) at-grade road that would run from Montgomeryville to Doylestown. The road has was at the front of discussion and controversies around the Bucks and Montgomeryville areas for almost forty years. It was originally planned as a four-lane freeway, but in 2005 the plan was changed to a two- to four-lane parkway after funding for the road was cut.[12] Construction began in November 2008 on the portion between Pennsylvania Route 63 and Pennsylvania 463,[13] with construction on the portion from Route 463 to the interchange with Pennsylvania Route 611 following in January 2010.[14] Completion of the parkway was initially expected by late 2010 with a planned opening date in early 2011.[15] The parkway was completed by the end of 2010 between Routes 63 and 463; this section remained closed to traffic until the remainder of the road was complete, with the exception of a small portion near Route 463.[16] The parkway opened to traffic at 2 p.m. on December 3, 2012 at a cost of $200 million.[7][17] Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley cut the ribbon to open the parkway.[8] The parkway was built with four lanes from PA 63 to PA 463 and two lanes from PA 463 to PA 611. It has 5-foot-wide (1.5 m) shoulders, a 12-foot-wide (3.7 m) walking path on the side, and a 40 mph (64 km/h) speed limit.[17][18] The US 202 parkway was designated as a Pennsylvania Scenic Byway; as such, billboards are banned.[8] On July 7, 2011, an act of the Pennsylvania General Assembly was passed naming the US 202 parkway the George A. Penglase Memorial Parkway in honor of a business leader from Bucks County who pushed for a bypass of US 202.[19]

Widening of US 202 between Sumneytown Pike and Route 63 to 5 lanes (4 travel lanes plus a center left-turn lane) is also underway as an adjunct to the 202 Parkway project, linking the southern end of the Parkway with the existing 4-lane highway below Sumneytown Pike. This section was expected to be completed by late fall 2012.[20]

Prior to the opening of the parkway, US 202 followed Dekalb Pike, PA 309, Doylestown Road, Butler Avenue, State Street, and PA 611 between Montgomery Township and Doylestown.[21][22] After US 202 was rerouted to the parkway, the former alignment was designated as SR 2202 in Montgomery County and SR 4202 in Bucks County.[6][9] As a result of the removal of the US 202 designation from the former alignment, several businesses along the former route saw declines in customers. In 2014, several businesses along the former US 202 pushed for the state to designate the road as US 202 Bus. in order to help them gain customers.[23] The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Special Committee on U.S. Route Numbering approved the US 202 Bus. designation on May 13, 2015.[24]

PennDOT has plans to widen two sections of U.S. Route 202, from U.S. Route 30 in East Whiteland Township to North Valley Road in Tredyffrin Township in Chester County, costing $175 million, and from Johnson Highway on the Norristown/East Norriton Township border to Pennsylvania Route 309 in Montgomeryville in Montgomery County, costing $130 million.[25] Preliminary work on US 30 to North Valley Road widening project involved the replacement of three bridges over US 202 between March 2007 and fall 2008, with an additional four bridges replaced or modified between February 2008 and summer 2010.[26] Construction on the actual widening of both segments was expected to start in 2009. However, PennDOT indefinitely suspended construction on both segments due to needing to use money to repair structurally deficient bridges.[25] Work on widening and reconstructing US 202 from four to six lanes between the Mill Road overpass and North Valley Road began in April 2011, with completion in September 2014. Construction on widening and reconstructing the highway between US 30 and the Mill Road overpass commenced in April 2013 and was completed in August 2016.[27]

PennDOT planned on realigning the intersection where US 202 meets State Street at the north end of the freeway in Doylestown into a T-intersection with a traffic signal. Construction was expected to begin in March 2015 with completion in October of that year. In addition, the intersection with Mechanicsville Road in Buckingham Township will be realigned from a sharp angle to a T-intersection.[28]
