Overhead Bridge Work on U.S. 422 and N. Gulph Road to Cause Lane Closures, Motorists Advised to Prepare for Delays

Lane closures

TREDYFFRIN TWP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has made an important announcement that is likely to impact many in Chester County. The department has scheduled overhead bridge work on U.S. 422 and N. Gulph Road in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, and Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County.

The work is part of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s project to widen and improve the Turnpike and its bridges between mileposts 324-326.

Through Saturday, February 24, motorists should anticipate single lane closures on eastbound U.S. 422 between 1st Avenue and U.S. 202 from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning. Simultaneously, westbound U.S. 422 will also experience a single lane closure between U.S. 202 and 1st Avenue from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM.

In addition to these disruptions, N. Gulph Road will also see a single lane closure in both directions between 1st Avenue and U.S. 202 until 6:00 AM on Saturday, February 24. Traffic paces, which are slow-moving blockades used to create gaps in traffic for construction or emergency vehicles, will be scheduled each night from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning.

Given these conditions, motorists should exercise caution and be prepared for slow or stopped traffic approaching these work areas. As with any outdoor project, the schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions.

All of this work will be completed under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit, which allows entities other than PennDOT (in this case, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission) to perform work within PennDOT’s right-of-way.
