422 West Detour Tonight, Friday In Pottstown

POTTSTOWN PA – Westbound U.S. 422 will be closed and detoured Thursday and Friday night (July 12 and 13) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, from Route 100 to the split with Benjamin Franklin Highway, for barrier installation as part of the project to reconstruct 1.2 miles of the highway between North Coventry Township and the Berks-Montgomery counties’ line, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.

Crews will work to set barrier that will establish a new pattern. It intends to shift westbound 422 traffic onto the eastbound lanes, just west of the Route 100 Interchange. During the overnight closure, 422 drivers will be directed to take Route 100 North and High Street / Benjamin Franklin Highway to access westbound 422.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area. Backups will occur, PennDOT said. All scheduled activities depend on the weather.

H&K Group Inc. of Schwenksville PA is the general contractor on the $35.5 million improvement project, scheduled to be completed in late 2020.
