Lane Closures on U.S. 422 to Cause Delays Next Week

Lane Closure - Traffic Alert

LOWER POTTSGROVE TWP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction activities will affect traffic on U.S. 422 in Lower Pottsgrove Township, Montgomery County, next week. These efforts are part of an $83.6 million project to reconstruct and improve approximately 2.1 miles of the expressway and replace several bridges.

From Monday, July 8, through Thursday, July 11, a lane closure will be in place on westbound U.S. 422 between the Oaks and Sanatoga interchanges from 4:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Additionally, from Monday, July 8, through Friday, July 12, a lane closure will affect westbound U.S. 422 between Evergreen Road and Armand Hammer Boulevard from 6:00 AM to 2:00 PM. During the same week, eastbound U.S. 422 will experience a lane closure between Keim Street and Evergreen Road from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Motorists should allow extra time when traveling through these areas as significant backups and delays are expected. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

Under the Section M1B project, U.S. 422 will be reconstructed on both existing and revised alignments. The goal is to improve horizontal curve radii, shoulder widths, and vertical clearance to enhance travel and safety. The project includes removing and replacing a culvert at Sprogels Run and an existing single-span bridge carrying U.S. 422 over Porter Road with a new two-span bridge. Additionally, the bridge carrying U.S. 422 over Sanatoga Road and Sanatoga Creek will be reconstructed and widened.
