422 Restrictions Start Today, But There’s More

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – The right lane of U.S. 422 east in the area of the Sanatoga interchange will be closed most of today (Friday, Nov. 6, 2015) for what is reported as “an emergency repair,” to be followed next week (Nov. 9-13) by daytime 422 lane closures surrounding the Trooper Road (Route 363) interchange, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District 6 office in King of Prussia announced.

The emergency repair to “a damaged expansion dam” along the road at Sanatoga will occur today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., it was reported. Drivers are being encouraged to leave extra time for travel during the quickly scheduled construction.

The Trooper Road interchange work will occur next Monday through Friday, also from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., PennDOT said. Restrictions are scheduled on U.S. 422 and Route 363 so crews can conduct sidewalk and roadway construction, line painting, pavement marker and traffic signal installations, and overhead sign operations. The work schedule is contingent on the weather.

  • 422 restrictions: its eastbound lane will close between the Oaks and 363 interchanges, and its westbound restriction will be from the bridge over the Schuylkill River to 363.
  • On 363, restrictions are planned between 422 and Audubon Road.
  • On Audubon Road, traffic will be restricted as it approaches the intersection with 363.

The work is associated with PennDOT’s $16.8 million project to widen 363 and build two additional ramps to improve travel through the Trooper Road Interchange. The project is expected to be completed within several weeks. J.D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen is the general contractor.
