422 West Lane Closure Due for Patches, Repair

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Westbound U.S. Route 422 will be reduced to a single lane next week and next weekend along a five-mile section between its Royersford-Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges across Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships for roadway patching and bridge repair, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Thursday (May 21, 2020).

The work schedule includes:

  • A right-lane closure scheduled Tuesday through Friday (May 26-29) nightly from 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. the following afternoon on westbound 422 between Township Line Road and Airport Road; and
  • A continuous right-lane closure is scheduled from Friday (May 29) at 7 p.m. to Monday (June 1) at 2 p.m. on westbound 422 again between Township Line Road and Airport Road.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling on U.S. 422 in the work area. Backups and delays will occur, PennDOT warned. All scheduled activities depend on acceptable weather.

The efforts are part of a two-year improvement project by PennDOT contractor H&K Group Inc. of Skippack to mill, overlay, and rehabilitate existing 422 pavement; perform bridge deck repairs, concrete and joint patching, sealing and drainage improvements; install new guide rail and rumble strips; and repair or replace damaged traffic signs along the corridor.

Work on this $19.1 million project will be performed with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance under a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan. It includes protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of jobsite entries, special signage, and relevant training.

The entire project is expected to be completed in Summer 2021.
