King of Prussia, PA – U.S. 422 motorists will encounter a lane closure in both directions next week between Park Road and Township Line Road and at the Limerick and Sanatoga interchanges for various construction activities under a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair seven structures along a five-mile section of U.S. 422 between the Royersford/Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges in Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedule is:
- Monday, January 18, through Friday, January 22, from 6:00 AM to 2:00 PM, a left or right lane closure is scheduled on westbound U.S. 422; and
- Monday, January 18, through Friday, January 22, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, a left or right lane closure is scheduled on eastbound U.S. 422.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage and relevant training.
Under this two-year improvement project, PennDOT’s contractor will mill, overlay and rehabilitate existing U.S. 422 pavement; perform bridge deck repairs, concrete and joint patching, sealing and drainage improvements; install new guide rail and rumble strips; and repair or replace damaged traffic signs along the corridor.
H & K Group Inc. of Skippack, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $19.1 million project which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. The entire project is expected to be completed in late 2021. For information, visit www.422improvements.com.
