Expect 422 Lane Closures for Patching, Bridge Repair


KING OF PRUSSIA PA – U.S. Route 422 is being reduced to a single lane this week across Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, specifically between the Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges, for roadway patching and bridge repair, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced from its King of Prussia offices.

The work schedule includes:

  • A right-lane closure scheduled on westbound 422 Monday through Friday (June 15-19, 2020) from 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. the following afternoon between Township Line and Evergreen roads for concrete patching and bridge repair;
  • A right-lane closure scheduled on eastbound 422 Tuesday through Friday (June 16-19) from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily between Airport and Lewis roads for bridge repair; and
  • A right-lane closure scheduled on westbound 422 Friday and Saturday (June 19-20) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. the following night between Township Line and Evergreen roads for concrete patching.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling in the work areas. Backups and delays will occur, PennDOT reported. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.

Under this two-year improvement project, PennDOT contractor H&K Group Inc. of Skippack will mill, overlay and rehabilitate existing U.S. 422 pavement; perform bridge deck repairs, concrete and joint patching, sealing and drainage improvements; install new guide rail and rumble strips; and repair or replace damaged traffic signs along the corridor. The entire $19.1 million project is expected to be completed in Summer 2021.
