Construction has begun on a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair seven structures along a 5-mi. section of U.S. 422.
The Wolf Administration announced that construction has begun on a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair seven structures along a 5-mi. section of U.S. 422 between the Royersford/Trappe and Sanatoga interchanges in Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships, Montgomery County, Pa.
"This project is critical to extending the service life of a major artery linking Montgomery and Chester counties," Gov. Tom Wolf said. "Travel and safety will be greatly enhanced once a new riding surface is constructed and repairs are completed to several bridges along this key corridor."
Under this two-year improvement project, PennDOT's contractor will mill, overlay and rehabilitate existing U.S. 422 pavement; perform bridge deck repairs, concrete and joint patching, sealing and drainage improvements; install new guide rail and rumble strips; and repair or replace damaged traffic signs along the corridor.
H & K Group Inc. of Skippack, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $17,874,021 project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. The entire project is expected to be completed in summer 2021.
