Pottstown Area Improvements – Sections M1A and M2A
PennDOT is replacing three U.S. Route 422 bridges over the Schuylkill River in western Montgomery County under two projects with a construction value of $109.3 million.
Work began in late 2012 on a $73.3 million contract to replace the structurally deficient river crossing between the Armand Hammer Boulevard and Route 724 interchanges — along with two Route 422 bridges over Norfolk Southern Railroad and the Armand Hammer Bridge over Route 422 — and reconstruct and improve 1.6 miles of Route 422 from the Schuylkill River Bridge east to the overpass at Porter Road (Section M1A). In November 2014, a second bridge replacement project got underway on Route 422 west of Route 100 (Section M2A). This four-year, $36 million effort will replace the twin spans with a single bridge.
Trooper Road Interchange Remedies
This $16.8 million interchange improvement is part of the U.S. 422 Schuylkill River Crossing Complex of projects that are designed to improve travel along Route 422. Interchange construction is scheduled to finish in fall 2015.
Under this project, PennDOT’s contractor will build an off-ramp from eastbound Route 422 to Route 363 (Trooper Road) and an on-ramp from Route 363 (Trooper Road) to westbound Route 422. The two additional ramps will complete the interchange, allow drivers to make moves in all directions when traveling between the state highways, and relieve congestion.
Crews also will realign the existing Route 363 (Trooper Road) on-ramp to Route 422 east; build a retaining wall and sound wall along the new eastbound Route 422 off-ramp; repair the existing Route 422 west off-ramp to Route 363 (Trooper Road); build a retaining wall along the new on-ramp to Route 422 west; widen Route 363 (Trooper Road) through the Audubon Road intersection; rehabilitate the Route 363 (Trooper Road) bridge over Route 422; widen Audubon Road to include an additional turn and merge lane from Route 363 (Trooper Road); build a sidewalk on Route 363 (Trooper Road); and install new traffic signals and curb ramps.
