Traffic Signal Upgrades Approved at 422 Sanatoga Ramp

LIMERICK PA – Good budgeting and efficient construction of the westbound on-ramp for U.S. Route 422 at its Sanatoga interchange left Limerick Township with a little extra grant money when that project was completed last November. Township Manager Daniel Kerr got permission Tuesday (Jan. 18, 2022) from the Board of Supervisors to put some of that remaining cash to good use … in the same location.

Kerr explained the township had saved money thanks to its ability to build the ramp for less than its initially budgeted cost. The expense was primarily covered by a Commonwealth Financing Authority grant jointly submitted with neighboring Lower Pottsgrove Township.

The ramp functions well, but it’s been suggested that traffic might flow even more smoothly with what Kerr called “some desired signal upgrades.” They and other controls would allow traffic lights to be better timed, he told supervisors.

Kerr asked the board to approve a recommended change order for the upgrades at a cost of $119,220. Supervisors unanimously agreed. No timeline for the work was discussed.
