Traffic Alert: Construction Projects on U.S. 422 in Montgomery County to Cause Delays

Traffic Alert

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has revealed upcoming construction projects on U.S. 422 in Montgomery County, set to impact traffic flow next week.

Starting May 20 through May 23, drivers can anticipate lane closures and periodic stoppages along westbound and eastbound U.S. 422 for shoulder, roadway, and bridge reconstructions. Controlled blasting activities will lead to intermittent traffic stoppages and paces on specific days, while concrete patching work will necessitate a rolling lane closure on westbound U.S. 422 between interchanges.

“Motorists should prepare for potential backups and delays during their commute,” warned a PennDOT official, emphasizing the need for extra travel time due to the ongoing construction activities.

These initiatives are part of multimillion-dollar projects aimed at enhancing U.S. 422 infrastructure, including pavement rehabilitation, bridge replacements, and overall roadway improvements between key interchanges.

As construction progresses, PennDOT urges drivers to stay informed about the scheduled activities, remain patient, and exercise caution while navigating through the affected areas.
