Lane closures on I-476, Route 422 in July

PennDot is closing one lane of Interstate 476 in Plymouth Twp and West Conshohocken, and one lane of Route 422 in Upper Providence, Lower Providence and West Norriton next month.

Lane closures on I-476, Route 422 in July


Montgomery County commuters can plan for slower traffic in July, as PennDot crews conduct the biennial* safety check on area bridges.

Interstate 476 between Ridge Pike and I-76 -- the southbound right lane will be closed July 8-12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Affects Plymouth Township and West Conshohocken.

Route 422 between Trooper Road and Egypt Road -- the westbound right lane will be closed July 17 and July 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Affects Upper Providence, Lower Providence and West Norriton townships.

By then, the Legislature will should have passed a transportation budget.  So we might even have money to fix the bridges if problems are found.

* For those of you who get confused, biennial means every other year.  Biannual means twice a year.
