CONSTRUCTION DETOURS OFFICIALLY IN PLACE – Closures of the eastbound on- and off-ramps for U.S. Route 422 at the Armand Hammer Boulevard interchange in Lower Pottsgrove began today (Wednesday, Sept. 3 (2014) and are expected to continue for three months. Although the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and Lower Pottsgrove highway crews more than a week ago deposited the signs all along the detour routes, they were moved into position Tuesday (Sept. 2) and were easily viewed by the driving public. This sign is among those that appeared on Rupert Road. The detours are necessary as part of the reconstruction of 422 between Sanatoga and Route 724. To reach Armand Hammer – as well as Pottstown Memorial Medical Center, professional offices on Medical Drive, and the Home Depot and Aldi’s retail stores – those traveling east on 422 must either exit at Hanover Street and drive east on High Street through Pottstown, or exit at Sanatoga and drive west on East High Street through Lower Pottsgrove. PennDOT’s recommended route is from Sanatoga.
