Lane closure on I-76 west this weekend

PennDOT announced today that that installation of a 300-foot long drainage pipe along the expressway's westbound right travel lane will prompt the closure of all but one lane in that direction.

Lane closure on I-76 west this weekend

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said today that the westbound lanes of I-76 will go down to one lane between I-476 and the Gulph Mills interchanges in Upper Merion Township in Montgomery County. That will occur from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday so that crews can install a new drainage pipe.


"Crews will work throughout the upcoming weekend to place a new 300-foot long, 24-inch wide steel drainage pipe into the ground alongside I-76’s westbound right travel lane. They also will reinforce a deteriorated pipe located underneath the westbound pavement. The work area is located between the I-76 bridge over Matsonford Road and the Gulph Mills exit ramp," the agency said. 

That lane-reduction schedule, PennDOT added, is dependant on weather. For more information on highway traffic conditions, go to or phone 511.
