The rerouted traffic on Markley Street may be a pain, but at least by now it’s a familiar pain for those who navigate the multiyear, $20.8 road-improvements project. But, just when you thought you knew the orange barreled boundaries of shifting lanes, along comes a new traffic pattern.

It began Tuesday night for southbound travelers on Markley Street in Norristown. Let’s let the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation describe the change:

“The single lane of southbound Markley Street traffic will be shifted over to the newly rebuilt west side of the street between Fornance Street and Harding Boulevard.
