Overnight Lane Closures Planned at U.S. 202/U.S. 422 Interchange to Prepare Highways for Resurfacing

King of Prussia – Overnight lane closures are scheduled on U.S. Route 202, U.S. Route 422 and ramps at its interchange in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, and Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, on Sunday through Wednesday (Oct. 19-22) to prepare the pavements for resurfacing, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said today.

This operation is part of the $4.4 million project to repair and resurface deteriorated pavement on Route 202 and Route 422 in the area where the two expressways connect. The pavement improvement project is financed from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s new transportation plan. Construction is scheduled to finish in late November.

Weather permitting, crews will work Sunday through Wednesday (Oct. 19-22) from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning to level pavement patches, clean shoulders and survey in preparation for paving, which is expected to start Wednesday night (Oct. 22). Drivers can expect to encounter lane closures on:

• Route 202 North and South between Interstate 76 and Route 252 (Valley Forge Road);
• Route 422 East and West between First Avenue and Route 202;
• Route 202 North ramp to I-76 East;
• Route 202 South ramp to Route 422 West; and
• Route 422 East ramps to Route 202 North and South.

Motorists are advised to use extra care and allow additional time for travel through work areas because slowdowns will occur during construction.

Funding provided by Act 89 is enabling PennDOT to make significant progress in addressing major roadway, bridge and transit needs across the Philadelphia region, including projects starting this year to resurface over 100 miles of rough pavement in the five-county area.
