Pipe Installation Prompts Night Lane Closures in Lower Pottsgrove

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – U.S. Route 422 drivers will encounter week-day and week-night lane closures in both directions (at top) Tuesday (Sept. 8, 2020) through Sept. 25, between its Armand Hammer Boulevard and Sanatoga interchanges, for pipe installations that are part of bridge replacements on Park Road and Pleasant View Road over the expressway, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.

The week-day and week-night work schedule is:

  • From 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning on eastbound 422; and
  • From 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. the following afternoon on westbound 422.

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. The project will comply with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance, including a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan.

The Park Road bridge will be replaced in two stages of construction, while maintaining two-way traffic on a single lane across the bridge using a temporary traffic signal. Replacement of the Pleasant View Road bridge will require a full closure and detour once construction starts. The replacements precede a future project to reconstruct 422 between its Sanatoga interchange and Porter Road.

H&K Group Inc. of Skippack is the general contractor on the $7.1 million project. It is expected to finish in late 2022.
