Reach For Commuting Aspirin; More 422 Delays Ahead

KING OF PUSSIA PA – Be prepared in March for a full month of lane-closing disruptions on U.S. Route 422 between its Sanatoga and Route 724 interchanges, the King of Prussia office of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has warned.

Traffic on U.S. Route 422 eastbound snakes its way toward the Oaks PA exit.

422 commuters should expect lane restrictions and intermittent traffic stoppages between March 1 (2013; Friday) and March 29 (Friday), PennDOT announced, as its contractor continues the years-long renovation of highway bridges crossing the Schuylkill River and the reconstruction of the Armand Hammer Boulevard interchange.

The work is part of PennDOT’s $73.3 million project to rebuild and improve 1.6 miles of 422 across Lower Pottsgrove and North Coventry townships. J.D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen is the general contractor on the project. Construction is scheduled to finish in October 2018.

The month’s work schedule requires:

  • One lane to be closed on eastbound 422 between the 724 and Sanatoga interchanges, nightly from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m.; and
  • One lane to be closed on westbound 422 between Sanatoga and 724, nightly through mid-day from 7 p.m. to 1 p.m..

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area. The work schedules are weather-dependent.
