KING OF PRUSSIA PA – After a delay of almost three weeks, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said it will close the U.S. Route 422 eastbound ramp at PA Route 724 in North Coventry Township on Wednesday (May 27, 2015), and begin to demolish then rebuild it. The work should be completed by March 2018, it added.
The agency’s King of Prussia office had originally scheduled the closure for April 30, then postponed the decision.
During the 20-month re-construction, motorists on 724 who want to reach 422 East will be detoured several miles away to the Route 100 interchange of 422 West, exit at its ramp for Route 100 South, and then take the ramp to U.S. 422 East. “Allow extra time for travel along the detour route,” PennDOT advised.
After it removes the existing 724 ramp, PennDOT contractor J.D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen PA will rebuild the section of the 422 bridge over the Schuylkill River and construct a new entrance ramp on a new alignment at 724. The work is part of the overall $73.3 million project to rebuild 422 between its Sanatoga and 724 (also known as Schuylkill Road) interchanges.
