U.S. 422 Lane Closures with Traffic Stoppages Scheduled Next Week for Bridge Construction in Valley Forge Area
King of Prussia, PA – Lane closures with traffic stoppages are scheduled next week on eastbound and westbound U.S. 422 between U.S. 202 and Route 363 (Trooper Road) for bridge demolition and construction as part of a major project to build new, wider bridges to improve travel and carry U.S. 422 motorists over the Schuylkill River, Norfolk Southern Railroad, South Trooper Road and Schuylkill River Trail in West Norriton, Upper Merion and Lower Providence townships, Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedule is:
- Sunday, October 15, through Friday, October 20, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane closures with periodic 15-minute traffic stoppages are scheduled on eastbound U.S. 422 between Route 363 (Trooper Road) and U.S. 202; and
- Sunday, October 15, through Friday, October 20, from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM, lane closures with periodic 15-minute traffic stoppages are scheduled on westbound U.S. 422 between U.S. 202 and Route 363 (Trooper Road).
Drivers should allow additional time for travel in the construction zones because backups will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
