422 Lane Closures Next Week in Limerick, Lower Pottsgrove

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Drivers on U.S. Route 422 will encounter lane closures in both directions next week along sections of the limited-access highway between its Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges in Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Thursday (Jan. 21, 2021).

Crews will be involved in “various construction activities under a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair seven structures,” it added. Personnel will comply with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health coronavirus protection guidance. Their work schedules and locations are:

  • Monday through Friday, Jan. 25-29 from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, with left- or right-lane closures scheduled on westbound 422 between Country Club Road and Evergreen Road, as well as at the Sanatoga interchange; and
  • Monday through Friday, Jan. 25-29, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with left- or right-lane closures scheduled on eastbound 422 between Park Road and Township Line Road, and also at its Limerick and Sanatoga interchanges.

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

H&K Group Inc. of Skippack is the general contractor on this two-year, $19.1 million project. It 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.

Work is expected to be completed in late 2021.
