UPPER PROVIDENCE PA – Construction is scheduled to begin next week on a $6.9 million project to rehabilitate pavement along eastbound U.S. 422 between its Route 29 and Route 363 interchanges across portions of Upper and Lower Providence townships.
The project will start with preliminary construction activities requiring a right-lane closure Aug. 22-24 (Tuesday through Thursday) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on eastbound U.S. 422 at its Oaks-Audubon interchange in Upper Providence Township.
General contractor J.D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen has been hired for the work, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Tuesday (Aug. 15, 2023). It plans to repair existing pavement with accelerated concrete patching; perform bridge deck repairs, diamond grinding, and joint sealing; and install reflective pavement markings.
Repairs will occur on eastbound U.S. 422, just east of the Route 29 interchange to east of the Pawlings Road overpass. Most construction activities will take place at night, during off-peak travel times, PennDOT said. There may be some daytime traffic restrictions, depending on the operations being performed, it added.
Work on the entire project is expected to finish in fall 2024. It is considered part of PennDOT’s overall U.S. 422 Improvements plans.
Because backups and delays may occur, drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.
