Two Scheduled 422 Lane Closures Extend Into July

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Lane closures in both directions of U.S. Route 422 are expected next week in portions of Lower Pottsgrove and Limerick townships, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said, as it continues construction activities on two separate improvement projects.

Work is scheduled for:

  • Sunday through Saturday (June 6-12) from 6:30 p.m. to 4 a.m. the following morning with a left- or right-lane closure on westbound 422, between Township Line Road and Airport Road in Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove, for paving;
  • Monday (June 7) through July 1 (Thursday) weekdays only from 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning with a right- or left-lane closure on eastbound 422, between the Armand Hammer Boulevard and Sanatoga interchanges in Lower Pottsgrove, for bridge construction; and
  • Monday (June 7) through July 1 (Thursday) weekdays only from 7 p.m. to p.m. the following afternoon with a right- or left-lane closure on westbound 422, between the Sanatoga and Armand Hammer Boulevard interchanges, in Lower Pottsgrove, for bridge construction.

Because back-ups and delays could occur, PennDOT advised drivers to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather. Work will comply with federal Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health COVID-19 guidance.

The paving is part of a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair seven structures along a five-mile section of U.S. 422 between the Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges. The bridge construction is part of a project to replace structures that carry Park and South Pleasant View roads across 422 in Lower Pottsgrove.
