Overnight Lane Closures Next Week on Several State Highways for Large Sign Maintenance in the Philadelphia Region

King of Prussia, PA – Motorists will encounter intermittent single and double overnight lane closures on several state highways in the Philadelphia region on Monday, October 16, through Saturday, October 21, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for large sign maintenance operations, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work locations are:

  • Interstate 95 North and South between Route 491 (Naamans Road) and Bartram Avenue in Delaware County;
  • Interstate 76 East and West between the Gulph Mills (Route 320) Interchange and the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Montgomery County;
  • U.S. 422 East and West between the U.S. 202 and Route 23 interchanges in Chester County; and
  • U.S. 202 North and South between Chesterbrook Boulevard and Allendale Road in Chester and Montgomery counties.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All activities are weather dependent.

Under this regional improvement project, PennDOT is repairing large sign structures in Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties. The project is expected to be completed in May 2018.

Carr & Duff Inc., of Huntingdon Valley, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $2,122,200 project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.
