Just because the summer is nearing its end, doesn't mean road construction is doing the same. Here's the latest from those friendly folks at the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.



"Daytime Lane Closures Next Week on U.S. 422 and I-476 in Montgomery County

"King of Prussia – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that lane restrictions are scheduled next week on U.S. Route 422 and Interstate 476 in Montgomery County for a bridge inspections and repair.

"The upcoming work schedule is:
