VALLEY FORGE PA – Several weeks after its first failed attempt to work on overhead lines crossing U.S. Route 422 in Upper Merion (PA) Township, crews from Philadelphia Electric Co. (PECO) will try again this Sunday (July 17, 2010), causing both the east- and westbound lanes of a portion of the highway to be closed to traffic between 6 and 10 a.m.
PECO originally scheduled the work for June 27, but violent storms that crashed down on the area only days earlier sent its workers off to fix damage wrought by Mother Nature, and the June attempt was cancelled.
According to the 422Improvements.com website, these detours will be posted and available while PECO’s work is being conducted:
- For eastbound 422 drivers: Exit at Route 23; turn right at Route 23; turn left at Gulph Road; and take Gulph Road to Route 202.
- For westbound 422 drivers from Route 202 north: Turn left at Gulph Road; take Gulph Road to Route 23; turn right at Route 23 and then turn left at the ramp to Route 422 West.
- For Interstate 76 drivers and from Route 202 south: Take the ramp to the Swedesford Road exit; turn right at Swedesford Road; turn left at South Warner Road; turn left at Gulph Road; turn right at Route 23 and turn left at the ramp to Route 422 West.
