Construction Continues Next Week on U.S. 422 Improvement Project

  
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction activities are planned next week on U.S. 422 under an $83.6 million project to reconstruct and improve approximately 2.1 miles of the expressway and replace bridges between the Sanatoga Interchange and Porter Road in Lower Pottsgrove Township, Montgomery County.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:

Monday, July 8, through Thursday, July 11, from 4:00 AM to 2:00 PM, a lane closure will be in place on westbound U.S. 422 between the Oaks and Sanatoga interchanges.

• Monday, July 8, through Friday, July 12, from 6:00 AM to 2:00 PM, a lane closure will be in place on westbound U.S. 422 between Evergreen Road and Armand Hammer Boulevard.

• Monday, July 8, through Friday, July 12, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, a lane closure will be in place on eastbound U.S. 422 between Keim Street and Evergreen Road.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Under this Section M1B project, U.S. 422 will be reconstructed on both existing and revised alignments to improve horizontal curve radii, shoulder widths, and vertical clearance to enhance travel and safety. A culvert at Sprogels Run, located just east of Porter Road, along with an existing single-span bridge carrying U.S. 422 over Porter Road, will be removed and replaced with a new two-span bridge. The bridge carrying U.S. 422 over Sanatoga Road and Sanatoga Creek will also be reconstructed and widened.
