King of Prussia, PA – The right lane is scheduled to close on eastbound U.S. 422 between the Oaks and U.S. 202 interchanges in Upper Providence, Lower Providence, West Norriton and Upper Merion townships, Montgomery County and Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, on Monday, May 6, and Tuesday, May 7, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, for bridge beam installation, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Drivers should allow additional time for travel in the construction zone because backups and delays will occur. The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.
The work is part of a $97.4 million project to build new, wider structures to improve travel and carry U.S. 422 motorists over the Schuylkill River, Norfolk Southern Railroad, South Trooper Road and Schuylkill River Trail.
