The right lane on westbound Route 422 will be closed between the Sanatoga and Route 724 interchanges starting Friday, PennDOT has announced.

The closure, on Friday, Dec. 16, and Monday, Dec. 19, through Thursday, Dec. 22, is to allow the placement of concrete beams on the new bridge being built over the Schuylkill River.

Crews will work from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m..

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area as backups may occur when westbound U.S. 422 is reduced to one lane during this time.

The upcoming operations are part of PennDOT’s $73.3 million project to rebuild 1.6 miles of U.S. 422 between the Sanatoga and Route 724 (Schuylkill Road) interchanges, and construct new bridges over the Schuylkill River and Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. Construction on the entire project is scheduled to finish in October 2018.

J.D. Eckman Inc., of Atglen, Chester County, is the general contractor on the project that is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
