Three Days Of 422 Lane Closings Set By PennDOT

POTTSTOWN PA – Eastbound traffic on U.S. Route 422 between Armand Hammer Boulevard and Evergreen Road will be limited Wednesday (April 20, 2011) from 9 a.m. to noon to the left lane only, as a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) contractor closes the right lane for a bridge inspection.

Similarly, the westbound right lane will be closed Wednesday from noon to 3 p.m. Both closings, however, are dependent on the weather.

The one-day lane closings are part of three days of minor interruptions on 422, PennDOT said. It also intended to:

  • Close one 422 westbound lane Monday (April 18) from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. between the Oaks and Route 29 interchanges in Upper Providence Township, for bridge joint replacement; and
  • Close one eastbound lane Sunday (April 17) from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., also between Route 29 and Oaks for joint work.

PennDOT said the work is part of its $4.1 million project to repair and replace bridge joints on highways across the Philadelphia region. A.P. Construction Inc. of Blackwood, N.J., is the general contractor on the fully state-financed project, which is expected to be completed by June 2012.
