POTTSTOWN PA – The 422plus Project, a team of planners and transportation experts studying the future of the U.S. Route 422 highway corridor between King of Prussia and Reading PA, released a series of videos Monday (Nov. 8, 2010) that attempt to answer frequently asked questions about the team’s work, 422 congestion, its effects on business and quality of life issues, and the possibility of tolling to raise money for its improvement.
The first and last of the four videos feature representatives of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, which is the lead agency behind the study, as well as planning spokespersons for Montgomery, Chester and Berks counties.
Others interviewed include Kent Smith, director of the John Middleton Co. in Limerick PA; Steve Tullman, chief executive officer of Phoenixville Hospital; Sue Padilla, president of S&H Interiorscapes in Oaks PA; and several area residents, all identified by name and municipality, whose comments about 422 were filmed at the Providence Town Center shopping complex in Collegeville PA.
All of the videos are less than 2 minutes in length, and can be found here:
