U.S. 422 Reduced to Single Lane Next Week in Limerick

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Single-lane closures in both directions will occur Sunday through Friday (Sept. 20-25) daily during both overnight and daytime hours for resurfacing and sign installation along a five-mile section of U.S. Route 422 between its Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges in Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The work schedule includes:

  • Alternating left- and right-lane closures in place Sunday through Friday from 3 a.m. to 2 p.m. the following afternoon on westbound 422 between Township Line Road and Evergreen Road and at the Limerick and Sanatoga interchanges; and
  • Alternating left- and right-lane closures in place Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on eastbound 422 between Park Road and Township Line Road, and at the Limerick and Sanatoga interchanges.
  • Additionally, lane restrictions with flagging will occur Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Upper Indian Head Road, between Cider Mill Road and Winding Ridge Road in Upper Providence Township, for bridge construction.

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

Under this two-year $19.1 million improvement project, PennDOT contractor H&K Group Inc. of Skippack will mill, overlay and rehabilitate existing 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.
