LIMERICK PA – Westbound U.S. Route 422, between the Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges across Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, will be reduced to a single lane beginning Sunday (July 26, 2020) for roadway patching and other construction activities, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The work schedule includes:

  • A left-lane closure Sunday through Friday (July 26-31), daily from 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. the following afternoon, on westbound U.S. 422 between Township Line Road and Evergreen Road; and
  • A left-lane closure Friday (July 31) from 7 p.m. to Saturday (Aug. 1) at 4 p.m. on westbound U.S. 422 between Township Line Road and Evergreen Road.

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