NORRISTOWN, PA — A new traffic pattern will be in place in Norristown for approximately three months beginning Monday, June 20, that will reduce Main Street to one through-lane in each direction between Water Street and Barbadoes Street, with available turn lanes onto southbound Markley Street (U.S. 202 South), for roadway and intersection reconstruction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.
With the new traffic pattern in place, motorists may encounter periodic stoppages on Main Street or Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) weekdays from 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. In addition, on-street parking will be eliminated on Main street within the work area.
Motorists are being advised to avoid travel through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All operations are weather dependent.
The work is part of the ongoing $25.1 million Section 510 Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) Improvement Project, which also includes improvements to the intersections of Main and Markley streets and Marshall and Markley streets.
Allan Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 80% federal and 20% state funds. Construction on the entire project is expected to finish in mid-2023.
