422 Lane Closures Ahead in Limerick, Lower Pottsgrove

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Drivers on U.S. Route 422 will encounter a lane closure in both directions next week – March 8-12 (Monday through Friday) – for construction activities between its Royersford/Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges across Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, the King of Prussia-based District 6 office of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.

The work schedule and locations are on:

  • Westbound 422 between Country Club Road and Evergreen Road, a left- or right-lane closure is scheduled daily Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and
  • Eastbound 422 between Park Road and Township Line Road, as well as at the Limerick and Sanatoga interchanges, a left- or right-lane closure is scheduled daily Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

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

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

Under this two-year improvement project, PennDOT contractor H&K Group Inc. of Skippack 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. The entire $19.1 million project is expected to be completed in late 2021.
