Construction Starts at 422 and Monocacy Creek Road

AMITY PA – Construction to expand the U.S. Route 422 left-turn lane at Monocacy Creek Road in Amity Township was set to being Monday (Sept. 13, 2021) and is expected to continue for the next two to four weeks, the township Police Department reported on its Facebook page. It recommended that drivers should “avoid this intersection if possible.”

Drivers using 422 who checked in Monday on Facebook pages elsewhere agreed with police that “traffic (was being) impacted in the area.” One reported she was in her car during the morning rush, crawling through a line of accumulated vehicles near the intersection. Others recommended Route 724 as a potential alternative to 422.

The department similarly warned residents of the Greenbriar housing community, some of whom are accustomed to commuting south on Monocacy Creek Road to reach 422, that they should “use other area roads to enter and exit the development.”
