LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Construction activities persist through Friday (Dec. 15, 2023) in Lower Pottsgrove Township, as the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation prepares for its next major renovations of U.S. Route 422.
Also, the department said, work was under way on a separate 422 project across Upper and Lower Providence townships.
Drivers have been advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. Backups and delays would occur, PennDOT said. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.
In Lower Pottsgrove
- A single-lane closure was in place daily since Monday (Dec. 11) from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on westbound 422, between Evergreen Road and Armand Hammer Boulevard; and
- A single-lane closure was similarly put daily since Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on eastbound 422, between Armand Hammer Boulevard and Evergreen Road.
Both lane closures allow crews to work on temporary barrier installation, clearing, and grubbing operations. The activities are part of an $83.6 million project to reconstruct and improve about 1.7 miles of the expressway, and replace two bridges between the Sanatoga interchange and Porter Road.
In Upper and Lower Providence
- A single-lane closure in place nightly since Monday – from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning, on eastbound 422 between the Oaks and Bridgeport-Valley Forge interchanges in Upper Providence and Lower Providence – is scheduled to end Thursday (Dec. 14).
Work there involved saw-cutting and joint-sealing operations. Those efforts are part of a $6.9 million project to rehabilitate pavement between the Route 29-Phoenixville and Route 363-Trooper Road interchanges.
