422 West Lane Closures In Effect During Overnights

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Westbound U.S. Route 422 will be reduced to a single lane through Thursday (Sept. 3, 2020) between Township Line and Evergreen roads, and at its Limerick and Sanatoga interchanges, for concrete patching and the installation of intelligent transportation systems conduit, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The work began Sunday.

Restrictions on 422 will be in force:

  • Overnights (Monday through Wednesday, Aug. 31-Sept. 2) from 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. the following afternoons; and
  • Overnight Thursday (Sept. 3) from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning.

The work is part of a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair seven structures along a five-mile section of 422 between its Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges across Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships. It will comply with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan.

Additional lane restrictions with flagging will occur Monday through Friday (Aug. 31-Sept. 4) on Upper Indian Head Road, between Cider Mill and Winding Ridge roads, in Upper Providence Township, PennDOT noted.

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

H&K Group Inc. of Skippack is the general contractor on the $19.1 million project. It is expected to be completed in Summer 2021.
