King of Prussia PA – Interstate 76 motorists will experience a right lane closure in both directions between the North Gulph Road/Valley Forge and U.S. 202/U.S. 422 interchanges in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, on Tuesday, June 22, for bridge inspection, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The lane closure will take place westbound from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, and eastbound from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because slowdowns may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
