422 West Lane Closures Ahead for Limerick Bridge Construction

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Westbound U.S. Route 422 will be reduced to a single lane next week (Sunday through Saturday, June 7-13) at locations in Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships for roadway patching, bridge repair, and paving operations, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.

The contractor’s work schedule includes:

  • A left lane closure scheduled Sunday through Friday (June 7-12) daily from 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. the following afternoon on westbound 422 between Township Line and Airport roads in Limerick;
  • Alternating left- and right-lane closures scheduled Monday through Saturday (June 8-13) overnights from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. on westbound 422 between Armand Hammer Boulevard and Evergreen Road in Lower Pottsgrove; and
  • A left-lane closure scheduled from Friday (June 12) at 7 p.m. to Saturday (June 13) at 10 p.m. on westbound 422 between Township Line and Airport roads.

In addition to the lane closures on 422, single-lane closures with flagging are planned on Evergreen, Airport, and Country Club roads in Limerick for bridge reconstruction. Those efforts are part of a project to rehabilitate 422 pavement and repair seven structures along a five-mile section of the expressway between its Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges.

That work schedule is different, and consists of:

  • A lane closure scheduled for Monday through Saturday (June 8-13) daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Evergreen Road between Lightcap and Rupert roads;
  • A lane closure scheduled for Wednesday through Saturday (June 10-13) daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Airport Road between Lightcap Road and Commerce Court; and
  • A lane closure scheduled for Wednesday through Saturday (June 10-13) daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Country Club Road between Reifsnyder Road and Eagle Drive.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling in the work areas, because backups and delays are expected. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.

Work on these projects will comply with federal Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance. A project-specific COVID-19 safety plan will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage, and relevant training.
