SANATOGA PA – Night-time lane restrictions for road reconstruction on U.S. Route 422 between the Sanatoga and Stowe interchanges began Sunday (Dec. 2, 2012) and will continue through Dec. 21 (Friday), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.

Work is scheduled for:

  • The right lane on westbound 422, to be closed Sunday through Friday nights from 7 p.m. to 1 p.m. between the Sanatoga and Route 724 interchanges;
  • One lane to be closed Monday through Friday nights from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. on eastbound 422 between the 724 and Sanatoga interchanges; and
  • The right lane on westbound 422 to be closed Sunday through Friday nights from 7 p.m. to 1 p.m. between the Stowe and Route 100 interchanges.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area. The work schedule is weather-dependent. Two travel lanes remain open in each direction on Route 422 during peak travel times when the highway is under construction.

PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to www.511pa.com or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions on major highways before heading out.

The work is part of PennDOT’s $73.3 million project to rebuild and improve 1.6 miles of Route 422 in Lower Pottsgrove and North Coventry townships. PennDOT’s contractor, J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen PA, will replace bridges over the Schuylkill River, Norfolk Southern railroad spur and Norfolk Southern mainline tracks.

Crews will also replace the Armand Hammer Boulevard Bridge over Route 422 and improve and realign the ramps at the Armand Hammer Boulevard Interchange. The Route 724 ramp to eastbound Route 422 also will be reconstructed.
