Lane Closures Weekdays at King and Manatawny

POTTSTOWN PA – Weekday lane closures are scheduled from next Thursday (Oct. 21, 2021) through Nov. 19 (Friday), from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, at the intersection of King and Manatawny streets (at top) in the borough, for sidewalk and curb replacement as part of replacing the King Street bridge over Manatawny Creek, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said Thursday (Oct. 14).

King remains closed between Manatawny Street and Route 100 through Spring 2022 as the bridge work continues. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Drivers will continue to use Manatawny Street, High Street, Hanover Street, Route 724 and Route 100 in detouring around the site, the agency noted. They’re advised by PennDOT to allow extra time when traveling near the work area.

Pedestrians will continue to be detoured over Manatawny Street, High Street and through the borough.

The project includes enhancements to roadside protection at the approaches to the new bridge barriers, wider sidewalks on both sides of the bridge, and new ADA curb ramps at the intersection of King and Manatawny. Decorative bridge lighting is being added to improve visibility. Rylind Construction Company of Lewisberry PA is the general contractor on the $4.2 million project.
