King of Prussia, PA – Southbound Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) will be reduced to one lane between Marshall Street and Main Street on Monday, January 17, through Friday, January 21, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM for installation of temporary traffic signal poles in Norristown, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
In addition, periodic lane closures will be in place on Main Street at the intersection during the pole installation.
Northbound U.S. 202 motorists headed to Norristown are advised to follow the project detour that uses DeKalb Pike starting in Bridgeport to avoid congestion at the Markley Street/Main Street intersection on the north side of the Dannehower Bridge.
Motorists should allow extra time for travel through or near the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All operations are weather dependent.
Reconstruction activities are now underway on the southbound side of Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) along with improvements at Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) intersections with Main Street and Marshall Street.
Allan Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. Construction on the entire project is expected to finish in late 2022.
