Overnight Closures Return to 422 for Bridge Work
LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – East- and westbound U.S. Route 422 will be closed overnights and detoured from Sunday through Friday (March 28-April 2, 2021) each day from midnight to 5 a.m., between its Armand Hammer Boulevard and Sanatoga interchanges, for continued bridge construction work on South Pleasant View (above) and South Park (below) roads that cross the expressway, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.
During the nightly closures, eastbound drivers on 422 will be directed to use Armand Hammer Boulevard and High Street to access the expressway at Rupert Road. Westbound drivers will be directed to exit at the Sanatoga interchange, and use High Street and Armand Hammer Boulevard to regain the expressway.
Travelers are advised to allow extra time nearing the work area, because backups and delays will occur, PennDOT said. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather. Work on the project will comply with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health COVID-19-specific guidance.
Replacement of the Pleasant View and Park road bridges is being done ahead of starting a project to rebuild 422 between the 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.
