TREDYFFRIN TWP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced that overhead bridge work is scheduled next week on U.S. 422 and N. Gulph Road in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, and Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County. This is part of a Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission project to widen and improve its bridges between mileposts 324-326.

From Monday, February 26, through Saturday, March 2, there will be a single lane closure with periodic traffic paces between 7:00 PM and 5:00 AM the following morning on eastbound U.S 422 between 1st Avenue and U.S. 202. Traffic paces are a traffic control technique where police vehicles are used to slow traffic to a desired speed, often to create gaps in traffic flow for construction or maintenance work.

During the same dates, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a similar single lane closure with periodic traffic paces will be in place on westbound U.S. 422 between 1st Avenue and U.S. 202.

Additionally, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, there will be a single lane closure with periodic traffic paces on southbound N. Gulph Road between 1st Avenue and U.S. 202.

Motorists should use caution and be prepared for slow or stopped traffic approaching the work areas. PennDOT advises allowing extra time for travel through the work zones.

This overhead bridge work is part of a larger project undertaken by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission to enhance the safety and efficiency of this busy corridor. The schedule of this project is weather dependent.

Consequently, when planning your travels, remember to factor in these possible delays and use caution when approaching the work areas. As always, drive safely, Tredyffrin Township!
