VALLEY FORGE PA – A single lane on the ramp from First Avenue to eastbound U.S. Route 422 in Valley Forge is expected to be closed today (Thursday, July 20, 2017) and Friday (July 21) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for pavement repair by contractor J.D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen PA, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.
PennDOT advised drivers to allow additional time for travel near the construction zone. Backups will occur, it said.
This work is part of the $97.4 million project to build new, wider bridges to improve travel and carry U.S. 422 motorists over the Schuylkill River, Norfolk Southern Railroad, South Trooper Road and Schuylkill River Trail.
