I-76 E to close during day next week for rock removal

I-76 E to close during day next week for rock removal



This just in from PennDOT:  

King of Prussia – Eastbound Interstate 76 will be reduced from two lanes to one about one mile east of the Conshohocken Interchange (Exit 331) in Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County on Monday through Thursday (Jan. 23-26) from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the removal of rocks from the highway’s embankment, PennDOT said today.

 PennDOT advises motorists to use an alternate route or allow additional time for traveling east on I-76 because backups will occur during this operation.

 As a preventative maintenance procedure, crews will remove rocks from the embankment at this location along eastbound I-76, which was the scene of a severe rock slide last September during an early morning torrential rainstorm.

 PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions on I-76 and other major highways before heading out.
