This Week: 7 Road Projects Affect Western County

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Drivers in western Montgomery County must deal this week with traffic disruptions created by seven different Pennsylvania Department of Transportation projects involving six separate roadways across nine municipalities, according to PennDOT’s District 6 office in King of Prussia.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through work areas. Slowdowns will occur, PennDOT said. Contractor work schedules depend on the weather.

Here’s a comprehensive list assembled by The Post of projects likely to affect its readers.

Through Thursday on 422, in Lower Pottsgrove

U.S. Route 422 drivers will continue to encounter lane closures today (Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018) in both directions for various construction activities in Lower Pottsgrove Township. The work schedule involves:

  • Alternating left- and right-lane closures on eastbound U.S. 422, during overnight periods through Thursday (Nov. 1), from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. between the Keim Street and Sanatoga interchanges, for diamond grinding;
  • Alternating left- and right-lane closures on westbound 422, during overnight periods through Thursday (Nov. 1), from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. between the Sanatoga and Route 724 interchanges, for pavement sealing;
  • A right-lane closure on eastbound 422 through today (Oct. 30), from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. between the Keim Street and Armand Hammer Boulevard interchanges, for line painting; and
  • Alternating left- and right-lane closures on westbound 422 through Thursday (Nov. 1), daily from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. between the Sanatoga and Route 724 interchanges, for line painting.

Through Saturday on 422, in Upper and Lower Providence

Lane restrictions on westbound U.S. Route 422 continue today (Oct. 30) through Saturday (Nov. 3, 2018) during overnight hours – from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily until Thursday (Nov. 1), as well as Friday (Nov. 2) at 8 p.m. to Saturday at 5 p.m. – for resurfacing operations between the Route 363 and Oaks interchanges across Upper Providence and Lower Providence townships.

Through today in Lower Salford

A single-lane restriction will continue today (Oct. 30) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Haldeman Road, from just east of Garges Road to Salfordville Road in Lower Salford Township, for milling operations. PennDOT will mill the existing roadway surface and repave the state highways with new asphalt to seal them and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

Through Friday in Royersford

A single-lane closure can be anticipated today (Oct. 30) through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Main Street in Royersford, between Fourth and Fifth streets, for traffic signal installations. The work is part of PennDOT’s ‘Green Light-Go’ initiative designed to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. It includes installation of fiber optic cables, and upgrading traffic signals.

Beginning Wednesday in Upper Salford

Lane restrictions are scheduled Wednesday (Oct. 31) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Lederach Road, between Haldeman Road and Schwenksville Road in Upper Salford Township, also for milling operations.

Beginning Wednesday in Trappe

PECO plans restrictions Wednesday (Oct. 31) through Friday (Nov. 2) daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Third Avenue, between Laurel Drive and Main Street in Trappe borough, for gas main work. During construction, traffic will be controlled by flagging. PECO will complete this project under a PennDOT highway occupancy permit.

Beginning Friday on 100, in Pottstown

Route 100 is scheduled to close between Shoemaker Road and Manatawny Street in Pottstown beginning Friday (Nov. 2, 2018) at 9 a.m., and is not expected to re-open until next Monday (Nov. 5) at 6 a.m., so railroad improvements can be made along railroad crossings through the borough, and Lower Pottsgrove and North Coventry townships.

The Colebrookdale Railroad is a beneficiary of the project. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

During the closure, passenger vehicles on 100 will be detoured over King, Manatawny, and State streets. Trucks will be directed to use Route 724, Hanover Street, Farmington Avenue, and Wilson and State streets, respectively.
