SANATOGA PA – There’s little rest for those working on U.S. Route 422 during Christmas week, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) indicated Friday (Dec. 14, 2012), as it announced night-time lane restrictions for road reconstruction between the Sanatoga and Stowe interchanges.
Scheduled to be closed is one lane eastbound Route 422 between the Route 724 and Sanatoga interchanges in Lower Pottsgrove Township, from Dec. 26-30 (Wednesday through Sunday) from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area. The work schedule is weather-dependent. 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.
