UPPER MERION TWP, PA — The right or left lane on the collector-distributor ramp from westbound Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) to U.S. 202/U.S. 422 in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, is scheduled to close on Monday, October 18, through Wednesday, October 20, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for final paving operations under a project to remediate several sinkhole locations on the interstate around the U.S. 202 Interchange, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

PennDOT reopened the right lane on the ramp Wednesday morning, October 13, following sinkhole repair. Sinkhole remediation on the left lane was completed in early August.
