Night Work Slated for Major U.S. 202 Improvement in Montgomery County

Traffic Alert

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has embarked on a significant $55.2 million initiative aimed at enhancing the U.S. 202 (Dekalb Pike) corridor. Spanning from Johnson Highway to Swede Road, this project will impact Norristown, East Norriton, and Whitpain townships.

Set to occur from May 20 through May 24, between 7 PM and 6 AM, the effort will see lane closures and potential traffic halts on both northbound and southbound sections of U.S. 202, stretching from Johnson Highway to Township Line Road. Motorists are encouraged to budget extra travel time due to expected delays.

The comprehensive project will not only rebuild and widen U.S. 202 but also introduce bicycle lanes, new sidewalks, and improved drainage systems. Additionally, the construction of two sound walls and upgrades to traffic signals aim to enhance the overall travel experience.

This endeavor is part of a broader strategy to revamp nearly 9.1 miles of U.S. 202, promising smoother and more efficient transit through Montgomery County.
