PennDOT Pothole Repair Next Week Solely Along 422

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Next week, in Montgomery County, pothole patching is solely focused on U.S. Route 422, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s District 6 office reports.

High temperatures for Monday through Friday (May 2-6) will range from 62 to 72 degrees, and precipitation is expected only on Wednesday. Pothole-filling crews and their equipment are expected to take full advantage of that spring warmth to tackle craters that dot 422’s four lanes. They’ll work across portions of Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, the office indicated.

Crews will restrict travel lanes on the highway, and about 50 others in the five-county Philadelphia region, to repair areas of deteriorating pavement. Drivers are advised to be alert of their moving operations. Intermittent lane closures and possible slowdowns should be anticipated when driving near work crews, it warned. All activities depend on acceptable weather.

As of Jan. 1, PennDOT said it has used more than 4,500 tons of asphalt to repair potholes across greater Philadelphia and its suburbs.
