Detour Signs Up for Pruss Hill Road Closure
PREPARED FOR CLOSING – Signs (at top and below) now point the way for a detour around soon-to-be-closed Pruss Hill Road in Lower Pottsgrove. The detour relies in part on North Sanatoga Road, a portion of which runs roughly parallel to Pruss Hill. The township Police Department has advised Pruss Hill Road will officially close Monday (Aug. 22, 2022) at 9 a.m. to enable replacement of its single lane, weight-limited, and long-deteriorated bridge. Local access will be maintained so residents can reach their properties. The closing time was specifically chosen to allow “morning rush-hour traffic to flow as normal,” police explained. Engineers have told the township Board of Commissioners to anticipate the road will remain closed for about three months.
