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.
