US 202 continues northward to West Chester, running concurrently with US 322 between US 1 and Chatwood. Just below West Chester, a bypass begins that speeds traffic past West Chester toward King of Prussia. This bypass is a major thoroughfare through Chester County and Montgomery County; it has been estimated that over 100,000 cars travel the road in parts daily. This led to a reconstruction of the highway in the early 2000s. The bypass parallels the Pennsylvania Turnpike and eventually runs into I-76 and US 422 outside of King of Prussia; US 202 leaves the freeway at this point and passes popular shopping malls outside Norristown.
