KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Highway projects being conducted in the coming week for or by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will affect drivers in Lower Pottsgrove, Limerick, North Coventry, Upper Providence, and Lower Salford townships, according to representatives in the agency’s District 6 office in King of Prussia.
Locally, travel could be slowed on U.S. Route 422 in three of the five municipalities.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through work areas. Backups and delays may occur, PennDOT said. All scheduled activities depend on weather conditions, and are subject to change.
Here are the tasks on PennDOT’s list:
A right-lane closure is scheduled Monday through Wednesday (April 15-17, 2019) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily in both directions on 422, between the Armand Hammer Boulevard and Route 724 interchanges in Lower Pottsgrove and North Coventry, for bridge inspections. They are part of PennDOT’s program to inspect bridges at least once every two years for safety and overall condition of the structures.
Expect to find pothole and crevice repair crews out next week, at various but unspecified days, times, and locations, on 422 in Upper Providence, Limerick, and Lower Pottsgrove; as well as on Ridge Pike in Limerick. Crews will restrict travel lanes on these state-owned highways to patch deteriorating pavement. Intermittent lane closures and slowdowns are possible.
Tree trimming and traffic signal installations
Weekday lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled from Monday (April 15) through May 3 (Friday) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Route 113, between Sharon Lane and Old Morris Road, in Lower Salford for tree trimming and traffic signal installations. The work is part of a project to replace three poor-condition bridges over Unami Creek, Ridge Valley Creek and the East Branch of Perkiomen Creek.
Additionally, beginning April 24, Old Skippack Road will be converted to a one-way condition for 250 feet from the intersection with Salfordville Road. Only northbound traffic onto Old Skippack Road from the intersection at Route 113 will be allowed. Beyond the 250 feet, Old Skippack Road will be maintained as a two-way road.
Old Skippack Road drivers traveling southbound will be permanently detoured to use Landis Road or Groffs Mill Road and Salfordville Road to access Route 113.
